Toltec Indian Language (Tolteca)

The Toltecs were a legendary civilization of ancient Mexico. According to Aztec oral and written history, they were the ancestors of the Aztecs (though some scholars believe they were a mythological race rather than a distinct civilization.) The Toltec language has not survived; if the Toltecs were real people rather than mythological, then their language was probably a precursor to the Nahuatl language of the Aztecs. Unlike the Aztecs, the Toltecs did not have a writing system of their own.
