There was an effort in the 1st and 2nd centuries to make the Middle East the craddle of civilization. So alot of stuff was gathered from the trade
routes and brought there. Gathered... as in pillaged and raped. In the effort to make one religion at the time much of the origins of artifacts were
concealed and claimed as original property. In an effort to not be raped and pillaged other artifacts were moved to safer locations. So the connection
to Hungary is interesting. Is that the origin or a hiding place? I vote origin.
