Aeschylus (ca. 525-456 BCE), the dramatist who made Athenian tragedy one of the world's great art forms, witnessed the establishment of democracy at Athens and fought against the Persians at Marathon. He won the tragic prize at the City Dionysia thirteen times between ca. 499 and 458, and in his later years was probably victorious almost every time he put on a production, though Sophocles beat him at least once

The congresswomen (Ecclesiazusae) by Aristophanes( Book )

19 editions published between 1902 and 1923 in 4 languages and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aristophanes' Ecclesiazusae, probably produced in 391 BC, is a typically Aristophanic fantasy of gender inversion, obscenity and farce, the earliest surviving work in the western Utopian tradition, and the source of a blueprint for a communist society on which Plato may well have drawn in his Republic. This edition attempts to set the play, more closely than has usually been done, against the background of Athens at the time of its production, when she had just spurned what proved to be her last opportunity to escape from a war she had not the resources to fight, and to define the details of staging as precisely as the text will allow."--Jacket

The birds by Aristophanes( Book )

9 editions published between 1906 and 1920 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tired of the unending wittering of Athenian lawmen, Euelpides and Peithetairos flee the city with their trusty feathered companions. However, their hoped-for exile begins with getting lost, and the play opens with them crowing and pecking at one another with all the fury of the most terminally bird-brained democrat. Which is when they meet 'his Hoopoeness', the once king Tereus, whom they convince to take them up to a new city, high above the base and grounded demos, burying the age-old animosity between birds and men and, ultimately, challenging the mighty Zeus for the top spot in the sky. The play is full of the most bawdy of Aristophanes' jokes, and is rife with the exasperated cynicism typical of the early satirist of the earliest democracy
