Bull’s head incense vessel found on Bulgarian island

An ancient incense vessel in the shape of a bull’s head has been found on St. Kirik island off the coast of Bulgaria.

Archaeologist Dragomir Garbov said that the vessel probably was used by the earliest settlers in Apollonia Pontica, an ancient name for Sozopol.

The head of archaeological excavations, Kristina Panayotova, said that the find was “very rare”, the only such incense vessel in the shape of a bull’s head that had been found in Bulgaria.
