A Hungarian archeologist visited several museums of the Kuban region (Anapa, Krasnodar) in order to find artifacts that could be connected to the time of the Hungarian Conquest of the Carpathian Basin (around 895).

 Unfortunately all these artifacts were found by local grave robbers so no proper archaeological context can be established.

  It is interesting to observe three spikes on the inside curve of the sabre handle. Sometimes we can see very similar spikes on sabres of the Saltovo-Mayaki culture.
