An ancient Greek temple dedicated to the goddess Demeter and her daugher Persephone has been found near the Black Sea in Bulgaria.

Panayotova explained that the figurines and ceramics found in a concentrated spot are clear evidence of the cult for Demeter and Persephone.

“We have come across pieces before but this time the finding is concentrated in one location, in the wall of the tower that was built above it. It is connected with the cult for Demeter and Persephone. As there is a church here, we naturally expected a sanctuary from the Antiquity period,” the archaeologist explained as cited by Focus.
