(Greek: Ευριπίδης) Euripides (Ancient Greek: Εὐριπίδης) (ca. BC– BC) was the last of the three great tragedians of classical Athens (the other two being Aeschylus and Sophocles). Ancient scholars thought that Euripides had written ninety-five plays, although four of those were probably written by Critias. Eighteen of Euripides' plays have survived complete/5(1). The Suppliants is the first play of a tetralogy which also included The Egyptians and The Daughters of Danaus, and the satyr-play Amymone. It was based on the legends about the fifty daughters of Danaus, who were descendants of Zeus and Io, a mortal woman, and the establishment of the family of Danaus as the royal house of Argos.

Specifically, the priest of Zeus and suppliants are gathered outside the main entrance to the Theban royal palace. Altars are set up to appease the gods. Oedipus comes out to find out what he can.

Colles, Walker, Wogan, Byrne, Sleater, and Lewis Dublin Australian/Harvard Citation Delap, J. , The captives, a tragedy; as performed at the Theatre-Royal, Drury-Lane. The Suppliant Maidens is the first play in a trilogy or tetralogy, the other parts of which are now lost. It may be the earliest play we have in Western drama, because the Chorus functions as the protagonist and Aristotle says that this was an archaic practice.
