PostSubject: Temple to Demeter and Persephone Discovered   Thu 19 May 2011, 10:53

I didn't realise the lives of Demeter and Persephone were so closely entwined that there would be one temple dedicated to both women.

Quote :
A temple of Ancient Greek goddess Demeter and her daughter Persephone has been discovered by a team of Bulgarian archaeologists near the town of Sozopol on the Black Sea.

The archaeological team of Prof. Krastina Panayotova found the Ancient Greek temple Tuesday during excavations on the Skamniy Cape where the archaeologists are exploring a fortress wall and a church that were part of a Byzantine imperial monastery.

Panayotova explained that the figurines and ceramics found in a concentrated spot are clear evidence of the cult for Demeter and Persephone.
