Degree of relationship to ancient play:
It is not certain that this was performed. If it was, the venue was probably in Paris and the date probably 1553-1554. De Sainte-Marthe completed the text after La Péruse's premature death; it was first published in 1556. Pasquier (Recherches de la France; 1. VII, ch. 6) writes that the play was performed and that it was not looked upon as favourably as it should have ('n'a pas été accompagnée de la faveur qu'elle méritait'). Quoted in Delcourt, Marie. Etude sur les traductions des tragiques grecs et latins en France depuis la Renaissance. 1925, p. 82-83, note 1.
