Athenian writer of tragedy who fought at Marathon in the Athenian victory over the Persians. He is the first of the three great Greek tragedians, the others being Sophocles and Euripides. Aeschylus' work has a strong moral and religious emphasis. Aeschylus' greatest contribution to the theater was the addition of a second actor to his scenes. Previously, the action took place between a single actor and the Greek chorus. Aeschylus is known to have written over 70 plays, seven of which are extant.
