Abstract

A salvage excavation at the Naip tumulus on Ganos Mountain in southeastern Thrace uncovered a stone-built, single-roomed chamber tomb with a dromos. The structure has a modest facade and corbeled roofing, which is semicircular in section over the burial chamber. It yielded a closed deposit that includes marble furniture and a silver sympotic set complemented by a Thasian amphora, as well as water vessels, articles for anointing and adornment, military gear, and lighting devices, all contributing to a banquet setting reminiscent of Totenmahl representations. From the aspect of regional relations, strong connections with Macedonia stand out; in terms of chronology, precisely dated finds indicate that the tomb was sealed in the last two decades of the fourth century B.C. Finally, the single interment at Naip is associated with a high officer in the Macedonian army and is tentatively identified with Teres, son of Kersebleptes.
