What do you make of some questions about the Athanasian Creed? That it was not written by him or part of any ecumenical council?

From here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Athanasian_Creed

The reasoning for rejecting Athanasius as the author usually relies on a combination of the following:

  1. The creed originally was most likely written in Latin, while Athanasius composed in Greek.
  2. Neither Athanasius nor his contemporaries ever mention the Creed.
  3. It is not mentioned in any records of the ecumenical councils.
  4. It appears to address theological concerns that developed after Athanasius died (including the filioque).
  5. It was most widely circulated among Western Christians.

Do we care who wrote it? Do we care if it was part of an ecumenical council?
