The Suppliants, also known as The Suppliant Maidens, The Suppliant Women, or Supplices, is a play written by Aeschylus, considered as the "Father of Tragedy." E. D. A. Morshead has translated this narrative. The Danaids form a chorus and play the protagonist in this narrative. They were compelled to marry their Egyptian relatives. The Danaids implored King Pelasgus to protect them when they arrived in Argos from Egypt. He refused to wait for the Argives' choices, which favored the Danaids. The Danaus was overjoyed with the outcome, and the Danaids worshiped the Greek gods. The Danaids are compelled to go back to their relatives for marriage as soon as an Egyptian news anchor shows up. Pelasgus appears, threatens the herald, and pushes the Danaids to remain within Argos' gates.
