Description: A part of the treasure of Khan Kubrat (632-665), gold, replica
The original is preserved in the State Hermitage - St. Petersburg, Russia.
The treasure consists of 700 gold and silver objects. The objects in the treasure are over 25 kg and silver - 50 kg. Thorough and long investigations undoubtedly relate the find to the grave of the Bulgarian ruler. Among the belongings there are the impressionable insignia of khan's power - a scepter and a gold horn as well as the symbols of the patrician's dignity with which khan Kubrat was honored by the Byzantine emperor Heraclius - a gold patrician's belt (cingulum), bracelets and a ring with monogram.
Provenance: Discovered in 1912 near the village of Malaya Pereshchepina (Ukraine)
