Although part of the tomb has been preserved and there the archaeologists found amphoras, gray Thracian ceramics and a build grave of white limestone. The scientists date the Thracian tomb on round 370 - 360 year before Christ.

According to the excavation works' director, the found tomb is of the kind of the Thracian tomb in the Sborianovo area, which is under the UNESCO protection.
