Agamemnon’s first daughter, Iphigenia, believed dead, lives in remote Tauris. The goddess Artemis had saved her, replacing her with a doe and taking her away from Aulis, just as her father was about to sacrifice her.

Iphigenia narrates this in the prologue, describing her painful condition as a priestess of Artemis, a foreigner in a foreign country, forced to make human sacrifices. Her brother Orestes, fleeing from the Erinyes, arrives in Tauris with Pylades and escapes the sacrifice because he recognizes his sister. The three mock the local king, Thoas, and flee across the sea.
