Very little is known about Sophocles' life. He acted as a treasurer in Athens from 443-442 BC and, at one point, was a general in the army. He is one of the three great Athenian tragedians, together with Euripides and Aeschylus, and produced over 120 dramas, of which only seven have survived. The most famous of these dramas is Oedipus Rex.
