L’ 'Ifigenia' sofoclea: analisi delle fonti e ricostruzione della trama drammatica


This paper will analyse the scant fragments of Sophocles’ Iphigeneia, not only to point out the status quaestionis on the subject, but also to put forward a hypothetical re-creation of the plot.
In the first part, I will examine the myth, highlighting the variants adopted by different authors; in this way, it will be possible to assess whether the choices made by Sophocles are influenced by previous versions of the myth or offer themselves  an original rendittion.
In the second part, I will deepen Sophocles’ fragments.
My work will then offer a case study on the myth of Iphigeneia and will show the extent of the variations that have been adopted in ancient Greek literature. The spread and fortune of the myth will be exemplified by a comparative table, a useful tool to better understand the genesis of the most peculiar of myths.
