Iphigenia at Aulis seems to have been constructed in a society in which it was ideal to put nation and family ahead of oneself. Euripides seemed to like this approach to duty, as the character who ends up with the ultimate compliment in the end-being whisked away by a goddess-portrays these ideals perfectly/5(13).

Iphigenia in Aulis is one of two plays about Iphigenia that Euripides wrote- out of those two, this one is by far the better one. Instead of following a hypothetical situation like Iphigenia Among the Tauri, Iphigenia at Aulis simply tells the story of a father who is forced to kill his own daughter for assistance in battle from the gods.4/5.

The main omission is a deux ex machina ending where a messenger explains that Iphigenia did not die but was replaced by a fawn on the altar.
