|Excerpt||During the excavations of the fortified roman site near Riben, Dolna Mitropolia district in Northern Bulgaria, a destroyed layer of a pre-Roman site was partially excavated. Only pottery sherds were discovered and among them two special finds - a potter’s tool (lustrator) and an amphora handle with anepigraphic stamp. The site is situated on a well-fortified hill, close to the river Vit, although without the presence of any archeological structures it is impossible precise whether it was a hill fort or a sanctuary. The lack of finds with short chronological circulation (fibulae or coins) makes difficult to establish a tight chronology. The pottery can be devided into two groups - wheel made (mostly gray ware) and handmade. They can be dated based on pottery analogies from Bulgaria and Romania to the period from the 3rd-2nd centuries BC -to early the 1st century. The site fits well within the archaeological landscape of North-Central Bulgaria where many sites and single finds are dated to this period.|
