Iphigenia in Tauris

by Euripides


tragedy

ca. 414 B.C.

"When Iphigenia, daughter of Agamemnon, lay on the
altar of sacrifice at Aulis, Artemis snatched her away,
and bare her to the Tauric land, which lieth in Thrace to north
of Black Sea. Here she was made priestess of the Goddess's
temple, and in this office was constrained to consecrate men
for death upon the altar ; for what Greeks soever came to that
coast were seized and sacrificed to Artemis"
And herein is told how her own brother Orestes came thither,
and by what means they were known to each other, and of
the plot that they framed for their escape."
