Aleksandrovo kurgan is a Thracian kurgan excavated near Aleksandrovo,
South-Eastern Bulgaria, dated to ca. the 4th century BC. Bulgarian
Archaeologist Georgi Kitov examined the kurgan in 2001, discovering
a round chamber with a diameter of ca. 3 meters, accessible through
small antechamber and a tunnel of a length of ca. 6 meters. Both
antechamber and main chamber are decorated with well-preserved frescoes.
The fresco in the main chamber depicts a hunting-scene where a boar
is attacked by a mounted hunter and a naked man wielding a double-axe.
The scene is interpreted as mythological, the naked man representing
Zalmoxis, the Thracian solar god corresponding to Zeus
