*****GK: I don't know which version of "Nestor's
Chronicle" (or translation) you are using. The oldest
extant manuscripts thereof know nothing of "roman
pastors". The text (Laurentian version) simply notes
that when the Hungarians crossed the Carpathians, they
entered a country inhabited by "Vlakhs/Volokhs" and
"Slavs" (not Slovaks). The source of your problem is
thus not here. Check your sources more carefully. In
any case, for "Nestor" (viz. all authors of the
Chronicle) the Zemlya Voloshska was Italy.*****

BTW what's a "profi"???
