      Archaeologists Unearth New Finds near Strumica in Eastern Macedonia
      Balkan Travellers [Bulgaria], 26 April 2010
      A unique lamp from the fourth century with the image of Alexander the
      Great and gold jewellery from the second century BC were discovered by
      archaeologists in the Tsarevi Kuli area over the town of Strumica in
      eastern Macedonia. The new finds discovered at the necropolis of the
      southern wall of the site confirm the theory that during Antiquity,
      Strumica was a well-developed trade centre, archaeologist Zoran Ruyak
      told the national newspaper Vecer today. The jewellery finds suggest
      that Strumica , which during the second century BC was called
      AstraƮon, had a well-developed trade center, a rich population and was
      in communication with the workshops in Thessaloniki and neighbouring
      towns, especially those of Isar Marvintsi and Vardarki Rid which are
      also being excavated this year, the archaeologist added.
