Degree of relationship to ancient play: 
Production notes: 
The translation, probably with additions, was perhaps made by Duke Ercole I. Duckworth states that the 1486 Ferrare performance of Menaechmi (ID 4500) was repeated twice in Ferrare, in 1488 (ID 7974) and in 1493 (ID 7972). However, it is possible that Duckworth is confusing the 1488 repeat performance with the one staged in the same year by clerics in Florence (ID 156).
