DTAG - Seven Against Thebes Relief

A bas-relief scuplture of the Seven leaders by Théodore-Charles Gruyère

The Seven Against Thebes is a group of the seven leaders of an Argive army which marched to retake the city of Thebes for Polynikes in Greek mythology.

History

Following a dispute over the rulership of the city of Thebes, Eteokles had his brother Polynikes exiled. Polynikes pleaded his case to the King Adrastos of Argos, and the king granted him an army. To lead this army, six others joined Polynikes.[1]

Many of the men were renowned for their deeds in the war, whether gruesome or grand. Following the conflict at Thebes, King Adrastos retrieved the remains of the slain and interred them at the Tomb of the Epigones within the Sacred Plains of Demeter in Attika. A monument for them was also erected within the Sanctuary of Delphi in Phokis.[1]
