Misc. Notes Source: Copyist score in the Bibliothèque du Conservatoire Royal de Musique, Bruxelles. - Facsimile Reprint: Ricordi, Milano 1984. - This is the original version of the aria as written by Giacomelli and performed in the Venetian carnival season in 1734. Farinelli, for whom the role of Epitide was tailored, later published a revised an even more extended version with some harmonic changes and an entirely new-composed B section.

Misc. Notes Transcription after a contemporary manuscript (Bibliothèque du Conservatoire Royal de Musique Bruxelles), published in facsimile by G. Ricordi (Drammaturgia musicale veneta 18, Milano 1984). - Antonio Vivaldi used this aria in his opera "Bajazet", with some changes to the text ("Sposa son disprezzata") as well as to the music itself - most significant the omission of measures 70-78 at the end of the A section. For comparison with Vivaldi's adaptation, please see the work page for Bajazet, RV 703 (Vivaldi, Antonio).
