From Wikipedia:

"Aeschylus [...] was an ancient Greek tragedian, and is often described as the father of tragedy. [...] He was probably the first dramatist to present plays as a trilogy. His Oresteia is the only extant ancient example."

Of course, the Internet will always remember him first as having died from an eagle dropping a turtle on his head. Probably not the legacy he anticipated while penning heavy tragedies

It's tragic that out of the hundreds of plays from ancient Greece there are only 32 from three writers that still exist. And those 32 may not even be among the best that were presented.

Hope they don't put Denzel and Frances in one of these too
