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.
