Euripides

Arguably the most famous of the Greek tragedians, and certainly the Neil Simon of his day, (for volume if not humor,) Euripides wrote a total of 92 plays, of which we have 19 remaining, including Alcestis, Medea, Hippolytus, Andromache, the Orestes, Iphigenia in Aulis (also in Tauris-she got around) the Phoenician Women and the Bacchae. He invented the tragic flaw, with the help of all those doomed Greek mythological characters. He is also famous for inventing the Deus Ex Machina, or at least was the first known playwright to use it.
