Occupation: Poet, playwright

Bio: Euripides was one of the three great tragedians of classical Athens, the other two being Aeschylus and Sophocles. Some ancient scholars attributed ninety-five plays to him but according to the Suda it was ninety-two at most. Of these, eighteen or nineteen have survived complete and there are also fragments, some substantial, of most of the other plays.

Quote of the day

And the end of the fight is a tombstone white, with the name of the late deceased, And the epitaph drear: A fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.
