Hi! Thank you for your question, we apologize for our delayed response. One of our writers answered you below:

Thank you for your question! After investigating the dating of this letter, we cannot affirm its authenticity. From what we found, the letter was written in Renaissance Latin and most likely originated in the sixteenth century. We could not find any evidence to support an earlier dating. If we later become aware of evidence for a first century dating, we will let you know.

Here is one article you may find helpful as you continue to investigate this yourself.
