-  "The plates were designed by cav. Nicolò Michetti and engraved by different artists. They represent the scenes of the opera as arranged by Michetti. The engraved frontispiece, not numbered as a plate, also by Michetti, is interesting as it contains a picture of the opera orchestra of the time with two cembalists and ten other players ... First performed at Rome, Palazzo Ottoboni, October 1729." Cf. Library of Congress. Music Division. Catalogue of opera librettos printed before 1800 (Washington : GPO, 1914), p. 259.
