    Little is known of his life outside of his writing.
    He wrote some 90 plays, but only 18 survived.
    He won only four Dionysia competitions (two posthumously), compared to 13 for Aeschylus and 18 for Sophocles.
    He reportedly left Athens for Macedonia bitter over his defeats.
    His plays frequently relied on deus ex machina for endings.
