Summary: Orestes, Agamemnon's son, returns from exile and places a lock of his hair on his father's grave. His sister Electra and a chorus of women also come to the grave to pour libations. When Orestes and Electra recognize one another, they swear to avenge their father's death. Orestes disguises himself and goes to the palace to kill his mother. His matricide angers the Furies, and Orestes flees from them to seek the help of Apollo
