Notes: 
La Péruse's adaptation in verse was edited and published by Scévole de Sainte-Marthe in 1556 one year after the author's death at the age of 25. Delcourt refers to Scévole de Sainte-Marthe, Eloge de Robert Garnier, and quotes Pasquier, Recherches de la France, according to whom the play had been performed while the author was still alive and 'did not receive as much acclaim as it should have' ('n'a pas été accompagnée de la faveur qu'elle méritait', Pasquier 1. VII, ch.6). See Delcourt, Marie. Etude sur les traductions des tragiques grecs et latins en France depuis la Renaissance. 1925, p.82-85.
