the statement is made that the Jasz were a branch of the Alans who
entered Hungary in the 13th century, fleeing the Mongols. They
apparently were not descendants of the earlier Iazygians of the late
Classical era (although the name of the earlier group may have been
applied to them). That seems a more reasonable scenario IMO than the
language surviving in the turbulent Danubian basin from Roman times
until the 1400s.
