      It must be the whole Kingdom of Hungary.

      Pomery = situation, conditions.

      Certainly, note that that's exactly what they're talking about. The word was _u'dena'r_, there were no pork specialists -- why would there have been -- a butcher handled all meat; it was the type of products and the process of smoking that needed special skills and different kind of premises than a butcher had.

      They were the richest, among the largest, and self-governing towns were simply concentrated there. Banska Stiavnica, for instance, was the 3rd largest town in the Kingdom for a time. They should have mentioned Spis too, but they may have thought its eastern, main urbanized part "kind of" fitted under Central SK.
