The sequel to the story
The Teucer of Sophocles.
His Eur saces.
1 Soph. fr. 519 (Nauck), from Stobaeus Flor. 122. 10.
2 Cic. De Orat. 2. 46. 193.Ribbeck, Trag. Rom. Fragmenta, pp. 116 ff. A fragment of the Teucer of Sophocles (no. 520 Nauck), belonging to the description of a storm, may be compared with a similar fragment (no. XV. Ribbeck) from the Teucer of Pacuvius.
4 For the fragments of the Eurysaces of Attius, see Ribbeck, pp. 179 ff. They contain the complaints of some one who is being driven forth into exile, and who upbraids the Greeks with their ingratitude. That this person was Teucer, is inferred by Welcker (Gr. Trag. p. 198) from Justin XLIV. 3, in which, with great probability, he finds an outline of the plot: “Gallaeci Graecam sibi originem asserunt: siquidem post finem Troiani belli Teucrum morte Aiacis fratris invisum patri Telamoni, cum non reciperetur in regnum, Cyprum concessisse, atque ibi urbem nomine antiquae patriae Salaminam condidisse. Inde accepta opinione paternae mortis patriam repetisse. Sed cum ab Eurysace, Aiacis filio, accessu prohiberetur, Hispaniae litoribus appulsum loca, ubi nunc est Carthago nova, occupasse; inde Gallaeciam transisse, et positis sedibus genti nomen dedisse.”
