Synopsis
The play now known at The Seven Against Thebes was the third play in a trilogy, which together with its satyr play, The Sphinx was given first place at the Great Dionysia in the spring of 467 B.C. The first two plays were Laius and Oedipus. What was contained in these two plays is not clearly known; for although legendary material was used, embodied for instance by Sophocles in his Oedipus the King, Oedipus at Colonus, and Antigone, and by Euripides in his The Phonecian Women, the freedom with which Greek dramatists treated legendary characters and details of their stories makes it useless to seek help from the plays I have mentioned. Comparison pf The Seven Against Thebes with Antigone and The Phoenecian Women or of the Libation Bearers of Aeschylus with the two Electras of Sophocles and Euripides, respectively will show this at once.
