The Hun bow is a type of bow.

The respect that the Goths had of the Hun bow was transmitted orally for a millennium among Germanic tribes and comes down to us in the Scandinavian Hervarar saga. The Geatish king Gizur who commands the Goth forces taunts the Huns and says:

Eigi gera Húnar oss felmtraða né hornbogar yðrir.
We fear neither the Huns nor their hornbows.

The Hungarian bow is an improvement of the Hun bow.
