    Euripides (c. 480-406 B.C.E.) is the author of eighteen extant plays and many more only surviving in fragments. He is the youngest of the three great Athenian tragedians with Aeschylus and Sophocles. Hippolytus, bastard son of Theseus and the Amazon Hippolyta, has sworn chaste allegiance to the goddess Artemis, thus severely offending the goddess Aphrodite by failing to revere her. Aphrodite swears revenge and promises that he will die before the day is done, taking with him Queen Phaedra, wife of Theseus.

    Euripide est un des trois grands tragiques de l'Athènes classique, avec Eschyle et Sophocle. Certains auteurs antiques lui attribuent 95 pièces dont 18 conservées dans leur intégralité. Il reste d'Euripide plus de pièces que d'Eschyle et Sophocle réunis, parce que sa popularité augmentait tandis que la leur déclinait. Il connut un immense succès durant l'époque hellénistique. Connu parmi les écrivains de l'Athènes classique pour sa sympathie sans égale envers toutes les victimes de la société, femmes incluses, ses contemporains l'ont associé à Socrate.
