Thirty bronze coins featuring the Greek god Apollo have been found near the Black Sea in Bulgaria.

The bronze coins feature Apollo’s head on one side, and on the other – Apollo sitting on an omphalos – an ancient religious stone artifact considered the center of the universe.

The coins, which are typical of the Hellenic Age, have been found in the remains of a villa from the 4th-3rd century BC outside of the Greek polis of Apollonia, today’s Sozopol. The villa is the first such archaeological structure outside the polis.
