Fun Trivia
Often described as the father of tragedy, the Greek playwright Aeschylus is thought to have written at least ten times as many plays as have survived. Of the seven we know, "Prometheus Bound" is disputed - it may have been written by his son. His "Oresteia" is the only ancient example of a dramatic trilogy to have survived.   

There are 5 quizzes and 60 trivia questions in this category.
