Good to know
The most important description about the Scythians - who created an animal style art – is from Herodotus (BC.484-425), the Greek historian. According to Herodotus, Scythia was situated between the Danube delta and River Don, on a steppe land, but the relics of the typical art blossoming out around 750 BC were found both in the Hungarian Great Plain and in Inner Asia too. The relations between the Scythians and Magyars have been extensively researched by historians and art historians, and although there is much debate, the relationship is recognised by many people. The Scythians might have belonged to the Iranian family of languages.Their flourishing empire to the North from the Black Sea was destroyed by the attack of the Sarmathians; they reached The Hungarian Great Plain in the 1st century AD.
