Plot Outline: Phaedra married King Theseus of Athens and gave him two sons; but she also fell in love with her stepson Hippolytus 4. Since he refused her, and her passion for him became known, she hanged herself, leaving a letter in which she charged her stepson of having assaulted her. This happened in Troezen, say some, or in Athens, say others.
