According to L.R. Shero, ‘Alcmena and Amphitryon in Ancient and Modern Drama’, TAPA 87 (1956), 192-238, at p.214, this work dates from ‘shortly before 1610’. R.A. Foakes in the Introduction to the Arden ed. of The Comedy of Errors p.lii says ‘?c.1600’ and takes for granted that it is later than Shakespeare’s play.
