A Hungarian count donated the Rohonc Codex to the country’s Academy of Sciences in 1838, but the 448-page text, containing 87 crude illustrations, can be traced back to the 1700s. Pictures of military battles and religious iconography populate the manuscript — Christian, Pagan, and Islamic symbolism. Scholars have suggested the book’s cryptic script could be early Hungarian, Hindi, and even a syllabary alphabet similar to Chinese. All of the research may be for naught since a number of scholars believe the work to be a hoax by Transylvanian-Hungarian antiquarian Sámuel Literáti Nemes.
