There are a few hypotheses about Pest.  One states that the name gets from Roman occasions, since there was a nearby post (Contra-Aquincum) called by Ptolemaios “Pession” (“Πέσσιον”, iii.7.§ 2).[56] Another has it that Pest starts in the Slavic word for cavern, пещера, or peštera. A third refers to пещ, or pešt, referring to a cavern where fires consumed or a limekiln.[57]
