Hippolytus (Ancient Greek: Ἱππόλυτος, Hippolytos) is an Ancient Greek tragedy by Euripides, based on the myth of Hippolytus, son of Theseus. The play was first produced for the City Dionysia of Athens in 428 BC and won first prize as part of a trilogy. Euripides first treated the myth in a previous play, Hippolytos Kalyptomenos (Ἱππόλυτος καλυπτόμενος – Hippolytus Veiled), which is now lost; what is known of it is based on echoes found in other ancient writings

Aphrodite, goddess of love, is offended that Hippolytos, son of King Theseus, has devoted his life not to her worship but to the worship of Artemis and to the hunt. In revenge, Aphrodite makes Queen Phaedra, stepmother of Hippolytos, fall in love with him. Realizing the hopelessness of the situation, Phaedra commits suicide, but not before leaving a note accusing Hippolytos of having encouraged Phaedra's affections. Enraged, Theseus calls on the god Poseidon to kill Hippolytos, which he does. But in his death throes, Hippolytos convinces his father of his innocence. Theseus is destroyed by all of this, and Aphrodite's revenge is complete. Original illustrations silk-screened on handmade paper accompany the retelling of Euripides' gripping tale.
