TROADES, trō'ȧ-dēz (Lat., from Gk. Τρῳάδες, the Trojan Women). A play by Euripides (B.C. 455), the scene of which is laid at Troy in the Grecian camp, where the captured would have been allotted to their conquerors. The play is made up of wonderful scenes of the fall of Troy, but lacks unity, and is marred by rhetorical display.
