Geographical region, known in English as the Great Hungarian Plain.   It is crossed by the Rivers Danube, beyond which the Romans did not advance, and Tisza.   The Plain was later settled by the Huns in the 5th century, by the Avars between the late 6th and 8th centuries and, permanently, by the Magyars from the late 9th century.
