Einstein gets all credit and glory: Olinto de Pretto had nothing to do with relativity theory

I hereby renounce my previous position that Olinto de Pretto, a Northern Italian, had derived the famed formula E=mc2.  It turns out that Albert Einstein indeed deserves all the credit.

Originally I read a book by Umberto Bartocci that claimed de Pretto as a precursor to Einstein.  Yet some years ago I got an Email from Professor Bartocci where he backed off such a claim.  Hence, de Pretto should not get any credit and all credit and glory to Albert Einstein (I always said Einstein was indisputably a super-genius).

My bad.  Einstein is now duly give credit as he always had in the past.
