Aeschylus
   wrote   
The Oresteia
A trilogy of Greek tragedies about the end of the curse on the House of Atreus. Though originally written as tetralogy, the fourth play, Proteus, a satyr play that would have been performed as finale, has not survived. The Oresteia was originally performed at the Dionysia festival in Athens in 458 BC, where it won first prize.
