The first town, built by Celts, occupied about 30 hectares along the slopes
of Gellert Hill (first century BC). It was called Ak Ink (meaning 'spring rich
in water'). Archaeological finds suggest that it may have been a densely
populated settlement, with a separate district of craftsmen (potteries and
bronze foundries). It may have been a trading centre as well, as coins coming
from different regions would indicate.
