Oreste nelle tragedie greche frammentarie

In this paper, I will discuss testimonies and fragments which attest the presence of Orestes in fragmentary Greek tragedy, in order to better appreciate different dramaturgical choices such as imitation, reworking, and originality. Through my analysis, I will underline how the figure of Orestes intensely inspired Attic tragedy due to the various narrative opportunities offered by the myths surrounding him.
