Euripide
Ἑλληνική Transliterate
English
Εὐριπίδης , Μνησάρχου Μνησαρχίδου καὶ Κλειτοῦς , οἳ φεύγοντες εἰς Βοιωτίαν μετώικησαν , εἶτα ἐν τῆι Ἀττικῆι . οὐκ ἀληθὲς δέ , ὡς λαχανόπωλις ἦν μήτηρ αὐτοῦ · καὶ γὰρ τῶν σφόδρα εὐγενῶν ἐτύγχανεν , ὡς ἀποδείκνυσι Φιλόχορος . ἐν δὲ τῆι διαβάσει Ξέρξου ἐκυοφορεῖτο ὑπὸ τῆς μητρὸς καὶ ἐτέχθη καθ’ ἣν ἡμέραν Ἕλληνες ἐτρέψαντο τοὺς Πέρσας .
2 γέγονε δὲ τὰ πρῶτα ζωγράφος , εἶτα μαθητὴς Προδίκου μὲν ἐν τοῖς ῥητορικοῖς , Σωκράτους δὲ ἐν τοῖς ἠθικοῖς καὶ φιλοσόφοις . διήκουσε δὲ καὶ Ἀναξαγόρου τοῦ Κλαζομενίου , ἐπὶ τραγωιδίαν δὲ ἐτράπη τὸν Ἀναξαγόραν ἰδὼν ὑποστάντα κινδύνους δι’ ἅπερ εἰσῆξε δόγματα .
3 σκυθρωπὸς δὲ ἦν τὸ ἦθος καὶ ἀμειδὴς καὶ φεύγων τὰς συνουσίας · ὅθεν καὶ μισογύνης ἐδοξάσθη . ἔγημε δὲ ὅμως πρώτην μὲν Χοιρίνην θυγατέρα Μνησιλόχου , ἐξ ἧς ἔσχε Μνησίλοχον καὶ Μνησαρχίδην καὶ Εὐριπίδην . ἀπωσάμενος δὲ ταύτην ἔσχε καὶ δευτέραν , καὶ ταύτης ὁμοίως ἀκολάστου πειραθείς .
4 ἀπάρας δὲ ἀπ’ Ἀθηνῶν ἦλθε πρὸς Ἀρχέλαον τὸν βασιλέα τῶν Μακεδόνων , παρ’ ὧι διῆγε τῆς ἄκρας ἀπολαύων τιμῆς . ἐτελεύτησε δὲ ὑπὸ ἐπιβουλῆς Ἀρριβαίου τοῦ Μακεδόνος καὶ Κρατεύα τοῦ Θετταλοῦ , ποιητῶν ὄντων καὶ φθονησάντων αὐτῶι πεισάντων τε τὸν βασιλέως οἰκέτην τοὔνομα Λυσίμαχον , δέκα μνῶν ἀγορασθέντα τοὺς βασιλέως οὓς αὐτὸς ἔτρεφε κύνας ἐπαφεῖναι αὐτῶι . οἱ δὲ ἱστόρησαν οὐχ ὑπὸ κυνῶν , ἀλλ’ ὑπὸ γυναικῶν νύκτωρ διασπασθῆναι , πορευόμενον ἀωρὶ πρὸς Κρατερὸν τὸν ἐρώμενον Ἀρχελάου ( καὶ γὰρ σχεῖν αὐτὸν καὶ περὶ τοὺς τοιούτους ἔρωτας ) , οἱ δέ , πρὸς τὴν γαμετὴν Νικοδίκου τοῦ Ἀρεθουσίου .
5 ἔτη δὲ βιῶναι αὐτὸν οε΄ , καὶ τὰ ὀστᾶ αὐτοῦ ἐν Πέλληι μετακομίσαι τὸν βασιλέα . δράματα δὲ αὐτοῦ κατὰ μέν τινας οε΄ , κατὰ δὲ ἄλλους ϙβ΄ · σώιζονται δὲ οζ΄ . νίκας δὲ ἀνείλετο ε΄ , τὰς μέν δ΄ περιών , τὴν δὲ μίαν μετὰ τὴν τελευτήν , ἐπιδειξαμένου τὸ δρᾶμα τοῦ ἀδελφιδοῦ αὐτοῦ Εὐριπίδου . ἐπεδείξατο δὲ ὅλους ἐνιαυτοὺς κβ΄ , καὶ τελευτᾶι ἐπὶ τῆς ϙκ΄ ὀλυμπιάδος .
5 They say that he lived for 75 years and that the king moved his bones to Pella . Some say that he wrote 75 plays ; others 92 . 77 are extant . He had 5 victories : 4 whilst alive and one posthumous , his nephew Euripides producing the play . He produced plays for a total of 22 years and died in the 93rd Olympiad ( 408/7 - 405/4 BCE ) .
1 Euripides , the son of Mnesarchus or Mnesarchides and Cleito , who , being exiled , lived as resident aliens in Boeotia and then Attica . It is not true that his mother was a vegetable-seller ; indeed , she was from a very noble family , as Philochorus demonstrates . His mother became pregnant at the time of Xerxes’ crossing and he was born on the day the Greeks defeated the Persians .
2 To begin with , he became a painter , then a pupil of Prodicus in rhetoric and of Socrates in ethics and philosophy . He was also a disciple of Anaxagoras the Clazomenian and turned to tragedy after seeing the dangers that Anaxagoras endured on account of the doctrines which he had introduced .
3 His character was sullen ; he never smiled and he fled company . For this reason he was also considered a misogynist . He married nonetheless ; first Choerine , the daughter of Mnesilochus , by whom he had Mnesilochus , Mnesarchides , and Euripides . Having divorced her , he had a second wife , whom he found just as licentious as the first .
4 Having departed from Athens , he went to the court of Archelaus , king of the Macedonians , where he lived , enjoying the greatest honour . He died as a result of a plot by Arribaeus the Macedonian and Crateus the Thessalian , who were poets and envied him . They persuaded a slave of the king , by the name of Lysimachus , whom they paid ten mnas , to unleash on the poet the royal dogs , which he had reared . Some recount that he was dismembered not by dogs but by women at night , whilst making his way early to the house of Craterus , Archelaus’ lover ( for they say that he was also inclined to this kind of love ) ; others say that he was making his way to the wife of Nicodicus of Arethusa .
5 They say that he lived for 75 years and that the king moved his bones to Pella . Some say that he wrote 75 plays ; others 92 . 77 are extant . He had 5 victories : 4 whilst alive and one posthumous , his nephew Euripides producing the play . He produced plays for a total of 22 years and died in the 93rd Olympiad ( 408/7 - 405/4 BCE ) .
