it is also thought that it may be attilas city
"The residence of the ruler of the Huns was then in Pannonia (modern Hungary), where they moved in 405 - 406 AD. The capital was between rivers Tissa and Temesh. Both rivers are left influents of Danube. The capital was a rather large settlement, which could be compared to a "most expansive city". It was surrounded by wooden walls made “of shiny boards, whose joints so counterfeited solidity that the union of the boards could scarcely be distinguished by close scrutiny (2; 101). Inside the territory of the settlement was a courtyard surrounded with a huge fence. Here were Attila’s tent and palace. The palace, constructed on a hill and topped by towers, was decorated with carvings.

re: the tomb
its is thought [hoped] by some "TV people" that attila is buried on the "steppe" or the plain on which sits timisoara [just south of the city here shown]. Recently a curious large low tumulus was recognized a few miles from the city and may be investigated. Sounds like good TV to me.
