CW/TW: far too many Greek myths involve assault. And this one features infanticide and cannibalism… Given it’s fiction, and typically involves gods and/or monsters, I’m not as deferential as I would be were I referencing the real thing.

Sources: Seneca’s Thyestes, primarily the version translation by Emily Wilson with long passages quoted from the Frank Justus Miller; Hyginus’ Fabulae; Theoi.com entry on Erinyes and quote from Ovid’s Metamorphoses.
