Often estimated as having been published in the 1770s, but the plate table suggests 1807. Of course, this may not be the first edition of the score. The dedication to Cherubini, who was at most a teenager in the 1770s, might also be a late addition, but it seems absent other evidence perhaps more likely that the work was just published in 1808...
