      I thought it was closer to 8-10% (7 extant plays out of 70-90).

          7 is 10.0% of 70. 7 is 7.8% of 90. A range of 8-10% is correct. I know IQfy is not IQfy but this is basic arithmetic.

        We don’t even have extent places. Some parts of the play about the daughters from Egypt moving to Greece (whichever one that is called) is missing so really it is like 6 1/2.

          Which parts? It does read a bit disjointed I guess.

          Agamemnon was the first play to ever make me feel the way Aristotle said tragedies were supposed to.

          What are the chances we find some scroll with a new tragedy scribbled on it?

          This is what we've got so far: https://papyri.info/search?STRING1=aeschylus&target1=METADATA&no_caps1=on&no_marks1=on&page=1

          I'm not really adept at navigating that whole world yet but I don't think it's excessively hard to figure out. All the Oxyrhynchus papyri publications seem to be up on archive and it looks like they even have translations for at least some of the more legible fragments.

          There are also various published collections of fragments by author but if you want to see new things as they're discovered this is the way to do it.

            I haven’t read it in a while but immediately after the daughters arrive in Greece I believe there is a missing section regarding their servant/ messenger.

            Interesting, I don't think that character appears at all in the edition I read. Would definitely help the play to have another dramatic element thrown in there, as it is it's a bit one dimensional and overly discursive, albeit with several nice choral sequences.

        He got the nickname for being very broad(shouldered). Although he did tend to refer to himself as Platon so imagine if The Rock was also the father of Western Philosophy

        cringe. the real reason for athenian moral decay were people like kallikles and thrasymakhos; the ones whose dicks nietzsche couldn't stop sucking
