Seller: neronpanonia (41) 100%, Location: Vrsac, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 323511256954 Sacred Celtic symbol of the Sun. It weighs 7g, made of bronze, original green patina, found with a metal detector. This item belongs to the European Celtic tribe of Scordisci, from the Balkans. The Scordisci was a Celtic tribe formed after the Gallic invasion of the Balkans, or rather a "Celtic political creation" having mixed with the local Thracians and Illyrians. The Scordisci were centered in the territory of present-day Serbia, at the confluence of the Sava, Drava and Danube rivers. The Scordisci consolidated into a tribal state. At their zenith, their core territory stretched over regions comprising parts of present-day Serbia, Croatia, Bulgaria and Romania, while their influence spread even further. The Romans reported that they had the custom of drinking blood and that they sacrificed prisoners to deities equated with the Roman Bellona and Mars.
