Archaeologists in Greece have located a "major treasure" of Minoan origin in a Bronze Age settlement on a small island in the Libyan Sea, the culture ministry said Friday.

A team excavating on the tiny island of Chrysi south of Crete for over a decade have unearthed a 3,800-year-old Bronze Age compound containing gold jewels, glass beads and the remains of bronze talents, the common unit of value of ancient Greece.

Some of the beads are of Egyptian origin, the culture ministry said in a statement.

Archaeologists in Greece have located a major treasure of Minoan origin in a Bronze Age settlement on a small island in the Libyan Sea , the culture. The Minoan civilisation, a naval superpower of the Bronze Age era, flourished on Crete and other Aegean islands until about 1500 BCE.

The archaeologists also found ancient fish tanks and large amounts of porphyry -- a prized purple pigment of the ancient world derived from sea snails, and later the colour exclusively reserved for Roman emperors.

"The amount of broken shells found...show a very early Mediterranean production of porphyry dye," the culture ministry said.

Il s’agit sans doute d’une des découvertes les plus spectaculaires – et les plus connues – de l’archéologie moderne. Voilà un pharaon dont le richissime tombeau aura davantage marqué l’imaginaire que son court règne (il n’aurait vécu que 18 ans). Les voleurs de tombes ont toujours été très actifs en Égypte, mais celle-ci aura passé inaperçue jusqu’en 1922.
