Medea (Ancient Greek: Μήδεια) is an ancient Greek tragedy written by Euripides, based upon the myth ofJason and Medea and first produced in 431 BC. The plot centers on the barbarian protagonist as she finds her position in the Greek world threatened, and the revenge she takes against her husband Jason who has betrayed her for another woman.
This scene depicts Medea fleeing after murdering her and Jasons’ children (whose bodies are the bottom right corner of the vase) with Jason to mourn and be doomed.
