Scene

Before the temple of Demeter at Eleusis. On the steps of the great altar is seated Aethra. Around her, in the garb of suppliants, is the Chorus of Argive Mothers. Adrastus lies on the ground before the altar, crushed in abject grief. The Children of the slain chieftains stand nearby. Around the altar are the attendants of the goddess.
