Eteocles and Polynice made an agreement: they would reign one year each, alternating on the throne.
Eteocles, however, at the end of his mandate, does not want to return the kingdom to Polynice, who arms six warriors of Argos, with him seven, and places them in front of the gates of Thebes to declare war on his brother.
Eteocles contrasts seven other warriors, including himself, by putting them in charge of the city. The messenger informs that Eteocles and Polynice also clashed and fell, giving each other death.
