Huge tomb of Celtic prince unearthed in France: 'Exceptional' 2,500-year-old burial chamber reveals stunning treasures

The grave was crammed with Greek and possibly Etruscan artefacts
The prince is buried with his chariot at the centre of a huge mound,
130ft (40 metres) burial mound from 5th Century remains unopened
Biggest find was a bronze-decorated cauldron used to store wine
Mausoleum contained a ceramic wine pitcher made by the Greeks
The burial chamber is one of the largest recorded for this period

Looks to be this field:

A cauldron with Achelous next to Sequana - very appropriate! Thanks, Tina!

P.S. - one of the origin myths for the Cornucopia is that it is one of Achelous' horns, which I think dovetails nicely with the fact that Celtic cauldrons and the Cornucopia are often equated.
