So-called "authentic" papyrus about the wife of Jesus is medieval

There is a news item about a papyrus that has been found in which Jesus is thought to have written about his wife. Scholars say that this was very probably written sometime between the years 659 and 859, so it is a medieval document. It could not have been written by Jesus, because He died long before the year 659. It seems to me that calling this "authentic" is false, because that implies that Jesus actually wrote it, which no scholar claims. What do you think?
