The Huns first invaded the land of the Alans , which was located to the east of the Don River , defeating them and forcing the survivors to submit themselves to them or to flee across the Don.
Ancient sources appear to indicate that not all Hunnic peoples were incorporated into Ernak's Bulgar state.
History of the Huns
However, the Huns, rather than return to their own country, began to ride to Gaul : Bauto was forced to bribe them to turn back.
Description: Thompson have claimed that the similarity of the ethnonyms Khunnoi and Hun were coincidental. A final possible survival of the Huns are the North Caucasian Huns , who lived in what is now Dagestan.
