Ancient Greek Settlement[edit]

In 2018, archaeologists discovered a previously unknown ancient Greek settlement of the 4th-3rd centuries BC near the town of Baherove. According to the researchers, the settlement called Manitra. On the territory of the settlement the remains of a rectangular tower were discovered. Near the settlement, a necropolis which was not plundered was also found. During the excavation of the necropolis, fragments of black pottery were found, which indicates the prosperity of the settlement. Among the finds were a lot of coins, as well as monetary and hoard of artifacts. Scientists believe that Manitra could be a royal emporium (trading settlement) for trading cattle.[2]
