Who wrote the Libation Bearers? This is the second of a cycle of three plays written by the Greek playwright Greek, the play is the Choephori, which means the Libation Bearers – the people who pour out offerings on a grave. In this case, Agamemnon’s grave.

    Fall and cleanse away the cursed libation's stair., Shed on this grave-mound, Fenced wherein together, gifts of good or bane From the dead are found. Lord of Argos, hearken! Though around thee darken Mist of death and hell, arise and hear Hearken and awaken to our cry of woe! Who with might of spear Shall our home deliver? Libation Bearers Characters. Orestes. Even for a guy who's got an entire tragic trilogy (the Oresteia) named after him, Orestes is one Electra. Electra disappears before the half-way mark in Libation Bearers, never to be seen again. From the Clytemnestra.
