The same alliance is unlikely for 1002, when Stephen I helped Basil II at Vidin. No war existed between Hungary and the Byzantine Empire in 10021038 (the maximum interval when the conflict with Achtum could be dated). We suppose instead that Achtum was an ally of the Bulgarian Tzar Samuel, before 1002. 78 Other historians79 indeed claimed that the Greek monks from the monastery built by Achtum at Morisena (Cenad) were in fact Bulgarians, whose name was replaced because the former Bulgarian state was a Byzantine territory when the text was written (the end of the 11th century).
This text was used by many authors of chronicles and annals from the 10th13th centuries.
