(From the publisher):
The scene is Thebes, and it is under attack by the Argive army led on by seven leaders, the so-called Seven against Thebes. Polyneikęs, the son of Oedipus, is fighting to win back his inheritance, namely his share in the rule of Thebes: to serve as Thebes king every other year in alternation with his brother Eteoklęs, the current king who will not share his throne. Iokastę, wife of Oedipus, and mother of Eteoklęs and Polyneikęs, meets with Polyneikęs to try to prevent the battle that is imminent, but in vain.
