Statue of Árpád at Ráckeve (Hungary) / Árpád (c. was the head of the confederation of the Hungarian tribes at the turn of the and centuries. He may have been either the sacred ruler or kende of the Hungarians, or their military leader or gyula.
shows Hungarian patterns, like the designs on many sabretache plates, such as the conquest period. They bought finished products from Byzantine, Arab and Khwarezmian tradesmen, so I think the Hungarian patterns in silk are irrelevant and unauthentic
The tarsoly plate was found in 1896. 8-10 years before, during the course of earthmoving work, the grave of a warrior buried together with his horse was found there. László Vidovics and Endre Tompos uncovered further 17 graves in 1896. The skeletal material from the cemetery has still not been analyzed by an anthropologist.
