Euripides: Hecuba

C. Collard

Liverpool University Press

Aris and Phillips Classical Texts

Hecuba, in slavery after Troy's fall, fails to dissuade Odysseus, whose life she once saved, from sacrificing her daughter to honour his dead friend, Achilles; but the girl dies proudly, true to her royal blood in surmounting degradation.
