*Dr Edward Duyker (pers comm): "I believe there is no justification for giving Piron the name 'Nicholas'. Helen Hewson attributes this recent discovery to the catalogue of 'Dare to Know' exhibition at the State Library of New South. The curator of the exhibition, however, could not give me any proof of the name. I believe you should drop 'Nicholas' from the website. This error is being repeated over and over now."
