[Opinions are divided on who was the author of this elaborate literary hoax which fabricated fragments of an Etruscan chronicle purportedly written by a certain Prosper Fesulanus in 60 BC. The antiquary Curzio Inghirami maintained that he found the chronicle among his family's papers and decided to publish it, backed up by already known and recently discovered Etruscan inscriptions around Volterra. Borroni and Brunet believe that
Curzio fell victim to a hoax by his relative Tommaso Inghirami of Volterra, the Italian humanist (1470-1516), whose rhetorical talent was praised by Erasmus, who became librarian of the Vatican library in 1510 and whose portrait was painted by Raphael (now in the Galleria Pitti, Florence). The cataloguers of the British Library catalogue of 17th century Italian literature argue that Curzio himself was the forger.]
