Some time after [[Theatre/{{Agamemnon}} Agamemnonís murder]], his son Orestes and a friend, Pylades, arrive to his grave after a long exile. Soon, they both hide as Orestesí sister, Electra, arrives at the tomb with some slaves [[TitleDrop carrying libations]]. She sees two locks of hair in the tomb, having been left there by Orestes earlier, prompting him to come out of his hiding place and convince his sister of his identity.

Orestes and Pylades pretend to be wandering travelers and knock on the door, calling Aegisthus with news of Orestesí death. Clytemnestra, delighted, goes inside to call Aegisthus, only for him to die when he meets Orestes in private. When she finds out, he threatens to kill her too, in spite of her pleading and reminding him of the fact she raised him. Orestes has trouble deciding if he has to murder her too to avenge her or not, but eventually decides the cause is just and does it. Then he wraps both corpses on Agamemnonís cloak.
