Poliochni's treasure

  A treasure of gold jewelry belongs to one of the last phases of the settlement. It was found hidden in a vase and consists of rings, earrings, bracelets, necklaces. Some of the artifacts were found entire, others were broken. All of them are similar to those of the so-called Priam's Treasure, revealed in Troy, which lies exactly opposite Poliochni, in Asia Minor.
