Aristophanes wrote Peace in 421 B.C. The satire focuses on the ogre War who has imprisoned the goddess Peace and holds sway over all of Greece; meanwhile, on Earth below, three rustic patriots hatch a plot to saddle their faithful dung beetle and fly to the heavens, to engineer the goddess' rescue and restore Peace to the land.
