Fifth Century BCE Athens gave us the plays of Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, Aristophanes and others. Aeschylus' Oresteia is among the very first of these -- and the sole trilogy -- to have survived. This cycle of three plays covers the murder of Agamemnon (the commander of the Greeks in the Trojan War), the revenge of his son Orestes, and the pursuit of Orestes by the female Furies for the murder of his mother, Clytemnestra. The final play in the cycle moves into a foundation myth of Athens in which the gods Athena and Apollo debate the status of women.
