hi, another important resource online is a video of a well-known production of the play, where they used masks - good to watch to get a sense of the whole play:

The Goldman vase book appears to lack most of the photos. If anybody really wants to see the photos, send me a PM and I'll see what I can do. ;)

A modern translation by Ian Johnston, available online. I haven't had time to see what it's worth, but I like his Homer.

Chad - that's an impressive list of books. I had no idea so many wise men were editing Aeschylus in the 19th century. All of them dead, it's almost creepy...

And a wise woman, too. Traces of Epic Influence in the Tragedies of Aescyhlus is by Susan Braley Franklin, who apparently studied under Herbert Weir Smyth.

First time I have ever seen a female classicist who was active in the 19th century.

I was mistaken. The poor quality of the copy of the article and the presence of only a couple of the forty three referenced vases led me to believe that others must have been lost in the copying processes. However, having checked the original article, I see that actually the reader has to somehow go track down images himself--images with 80 year old references to boot.
