Lost Dramas of Classical Athens

This chapter presents an attempt to reconstruct the setting and action of a fragmentary tragedy. Exploring the ways in which these Aeschylean fragments may be contextualized allows us to consider what the fragments of the play can tell us about a number of issues, most notably the portrayal of the peoples of the Near East in Attic tragedy. In discussing the likely setting of the play, the chapter considers the ways in which the names of peoples and places in the Near East are often used interchangeably by Greek authors, and examines various traditions concerning the origins of such ethnic groups.

Keywords:   Greek tragedies, tragic fragments, fragmentary text, Aeschylean fragments, lost plays, Near East
