Изложба НБУOn May 16, 2023 (Tuesday) at 16h00 in the New Bulgarian University, building I, floor 4, the exhibition Egyptian Cults on the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast will be opened. The exhibition is organized by the Bulgarian Institute of Egyptology and the Institute of Balkan Studies and Alexander Fol Centre of Tracology at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences.

The monuments presented in the exhibition originate from the ancient cities located on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast: Apollonia Pontica (Sozopol), Messambria (Nessebar), Anhialo (Pomorie), Odessos (Varna) and Dionysopolis (Balchik). They are divided into five sections according to their type: AMULETS, EPIGRAPHIC MONUMENTS, TERRACOTTA, BRONZE, NUMISMATICS. They are selected to illustrate the penetration of Egyptian cults into Ancient Thrace. Due to the communicative location of these cities, this penetration first took place here probably as early as the beginning of the 1st millennium BC. The earliest known monuments with Egyptian influence are the amulets found in the Greek colonies of Apollonia Pontica (Sozopol) and Mesambria (Nessebar).
