Aeschylus, the son of Euphorion, was born about 513 or 512 B.C. The great Persian wars occurred during his adult life and he fought at Marathon. He left behind more than seventy plays, of which seven have survived. These Greek tragedies are based on stories told or indicated in previous Greek legend. This book, in particular, was drawn from the epic poems of Homer and his successors and constitutes an informal, but comprehensive history of the world as the Greeks read it. Soft 171p
