The Sitovo inscription is an inscription that has yet to be satisfactorily translated. It was discovered in 1928 by an archaeological expedition led by Dr Alexander Peev on the wall of the [2] Sitovo cave, close to Plovdiv, Bulgaria. It was most likely inscribed around 1,200 B.C. It was published in 1950 by Z. R. Morfova.

The inscription is in two lines which are 3.40 metres (11.2 ft) long. The written signs are 40 centimetres (16 in) tall.

Various attempts by both amateurs and professionals to translate it have been made. It has been identified as both ancient  Celtic, Slavic and Phrygian.
