Balázs Déri says :

Pasternak family may somehow descend from Ernak son of Athila ,king of the Huns , who returned into Khazaria,and then possibly even to Skythia after the death of his father in 453 according to Seleucid aera corresponding to 1527 of the Spanish one now in use all over the world due to globalisation .

The town of Pasto in Ecuador namely has been founded by Quillasinga / Quillacenca people , who may descend from kings,that is Incas of Seekel people as their name shows : Kel-ya-Se Inca . Their contemporane successors may be in the region tribe called Tsachila,who have conserved the name of their ancestor,whereas Tsa in their language means real and Achila is Athila ( pronouncerd Atshila ) .

Athila is identical with Huayna Capac ,called in the region possibly also Uainia Abo-Matha, and in the European Hungary Mathias,and in Asia probably Ramathibodi that is Rab-Mathi-Bodi . He might have also had some interests in the town of Za-Achila in Zapoteca country .

Pasternaks,with a name composed of the name of their seat in the Holy Land and of the one of their ancestor,might have returned into Europe due to events of those times in America and joined their relatives left in thet exile ,as it is all told of Prince Chaba .
