Leonhard Euler - 18th Century Mathematician - Is this Authentic?

Can anyone weigh in on whether this document is authentic? It is a paper on differential equations, written in Latin and appears to be signed by Euler at the top. The bifolium paper seems correct for the time period. I stumbled on this, and I'm trying not to let my hopes get too high! Thanks for any help with this.

I remember seeing this on Thee-bay - as it was called then. About 1801 as I remember. Probably fake.

You might get better advice on a manuscriptologist's forum.

Yes, manuscriptologist is a word!

In case anyone is interested, I contacted a Euler scholar, and he feels certain this is authentic! He provided a bunch of information about it, and was pretty happy to have a scan, because scholars were not previously aware of its existence.
