NOTE.

In writing this translation as an adjunct to a commentary on Sophocles, the author had no intention of publishing it separately; but he has seen reason to think that, by doing so, he may meet the convenience of some readers. The brief introduction here prefixed to each play supplies τὰ ἔξω τῆς τραγῳδίας,—the events which are supposed to have occurred before the moment at which the drama begins.


Cambridge,
August 1904.
