The oldest lossless codec?

I was just curious, what was the first lossless format used to store music in files? Was it WavPack in 1998? How did it all start? Since I first encountered lossless in mid 2006 (FLAC or APE cannot remember), I had for sure missed the initial wave...

Wow, 1993... That is way ahead of time.

Comparison of audio coding formats.

ATRAC - 1991

I remember Shorten and OptimFROG as earliest for me in early 2000s. Didn't realise Shorten was so old.
