It’s time for a bit of comedic relief (and Euripidean slander)… We’re diving in to Aristophanes’ play the Thesmophoriazae/the Women at the Thesmophoria. It’s got women (kind of!)! It’s got a women’s only festival! It’s got Euripides! This one has it all. Help keep LTAMB going by subscribing to Liv’s Patreon for bonus content!
