The Phoenician Women Play by Euripides (Farsi)
Phoenician Women, Greek Phoinissai, minor drama by Euripides, performed about 409 bce. The play is set at Thebes and concerns the battle between the two sons of Oedipus over control of the city. When Eteocles refuses to yield power, Polyneices brings an army to attack the city.
Euripides (c. 480 – c. 406 BC) was a tragedian of classical Athens. Along with Aeschylus and Sophocles, he is one of the three ancient Greek tragedians for whom any plays have survived in full. Some ancient scholars attributed ninety-five plays to him, but the Suda says it was ninety-two at most. Of these, eighteen or nineteen have survived more or less complete (Rhesus is suspect). There are many fragments (some substantial) of most of his other plays. More of his plays have survived intact than those of Aeschylus and Sophocles together, partly because his popularity grew as theirs declined—he became, in the Hellenistic Age, a cornerstone of ancient literary education, along with Homer, Demosthenes, and Menander.
