Roman writer Priscus/Jordanes describes Attila[1][2] thusly:
"Short of stature, with a broad chest and a large head; his eyes were small, his beard thin and sprinkled with grey; and he had a flat nose and tanned skin, showing evidence of his origin."



The Xiongnu Huns ( from Mongolia ) were described as short even by Chinese standards.


匈奴人的奴隸 ( translated from google )

A description of Huns slaves captured by Chinese soldiers and reported their appearance

Translation to English

" Short stature with larger belly , their eyes are tiny and their feet are small. Their faces frightens a child like demons from the underworld "


Hsiung-Nu ( Huns of Mongolia ) portrayed by the Chinese:

" They are short, with a stocky body and a very large round head ,broad face, prominent cheekbones, wide nostrils, a fairly bushy mustache and no beard except for a tuft of stiff hair on the chin; their long ears are pierced and adorned with a ring. The head is usually shaved,except for a tuft on top. The eyebrows are thick, the eyes almond-shaped with a very fiery pupil. They wear a loose robe to the calf, split at the sides and gathered in by a girdle whose ends hang down in front. Because of the cold the sleeves are gathered in tightly at the wrists. A short fur cape covers their shoulders,and they have wide trousers strapped in at the ankle. he sheat of the bow hangs from the belt in front of the left thigh. The quiver, also suspended from the belt, hangs across the small of the back,the barbs of the arrows to the right. "

(Wieger translation)

"They made their foes flee in horror because their swarthy aspect was fearful, and they had, if I may call it so, a sort of shapeless lump, not a head, with pin-holes rather than eyes. Their hardihood is evident in their wild appearance, and they are beings who are cruel to their children on the very day they are born. For they cut the cheeks of the males with a sword, so that before they receive the nourishment of milk they must learn to endure wounds. Hence they grow old beardless and their young men are without comeliness, because a face furrowed by the sword spoils by its scars the natural beauty of a beard. They are short in stature, quick in bodily movement, alert horsemen, broad shouldered, ready in the use of bow and arrow, and have firm-set necks which are ever erect in pride. Though they live in the form of men, they have the cruelty of wild beasts."
Jordanes, XXXIV

Attila :
"Short of stature, with a broad chest and a large head; his eyes were small, his beard thin and sprinkled with grey; and he had a flat nose and tanned skin, showing evidence of his origin."

The Xianbei, who were for over a century the dominant group on the steppe, are known to have incorporated Xiongnu/Huns into their ranks.35
