Ion is one of Euripdes' less well known plays, in antiquity just as today, possibly due to the obscurity of the myth on which it was based. The story concerns the rape of Creousa by Apollo, and the upbringing of the resultant son abandoned son Ion, and his search for his identity. Laura Swift's concise analysis of the play provides a full context for the issues it brings up of divine justice and responsibility, of the nature of parenthood and most of all of Athenian imperialism.
