The prehistory to Iphigenia on Tauris

The heroine Iphigenia is the daughter of King Agamemnon , the general of the Greek troops in the Trojan War . Homer’s epic Iliad in particular reports on the Trojan War , but also numerous other writings from ancient Greece. So now the entire Greek fleet gathers at Aulis to sail together to Troy to go to war, when suddenly there is a calm. The sailing ships of the Greeks cannot sail without wind.
