Euripedes' The Trojan Women is regarded as the most powerful anti-warv play ever written. It depicts the hollowness of victory and the anquish of the conquered. During the Trojan War, the Greeks gave a giant wooden horse filled with soldiers armed with spears to the Trojans as a "parting" gift. After ten years of War, the Greeks vanquished Troy in a single night. In the contest of 415 B.C., this play won Euripedes only second prize.
