Deus Ex Machina: The Very "Meh" Iphigenia at Aulis Epilogue (Iphigenia at Aulis Bonus)

Some believe Eurpides' play ends with Iphigenia walking to her sacrifice, but there's an epilogue that may or may not have been written by the tragedian.

CW/TW: far too many Greek myths involve assault. 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.
