A further 52 tragedies & 11 satyr plays, including a few of disputed authorship, are known from ancient quotations & references & from numerous papyri discovered since 1880. No more than 1/5th of any play is represented, but many can be reconstructed with some accuracy in outline, & many of the fragments are striking in themselves. The extant plays & the fragments together make Euripides by far the best known of the classic Greek tragedians.This edition, in a projected two volumes, offers the 1st complete English translation of the fragments together with a selection of testimonia bearing on the content of the plays.

The texts are based on the recent comprehensive edition of R. Kannicht. A general Introduction discusses the evidence for the lost plays. Each play is prefaced by a select bibliography & an introductory discussion of its mythical background, plot, & location of the fragments, general character, chronology, & impact on subsequent literary & artistic traditions.
