10th century Byzantine seal discovered in Bulgaria

A unique medieval Byzantine seal has been found at the site of the Knyazhevski Monastery in Bulgaria.

According to a report by the Sofia News Agency, the seal is dated back to the 10th century and belonged to the Byzantine dignitary Antonius, who was an imperial protospatario in Constantinople.

Antonius had correspondence with a representative of the Knyazhevski Monastery, who is believed to have been the Bulgarian Knyaz (king) Boris I (r. 852-889 AD) himself.
