Symbols: Oedipus Rex

Oedipus Rex

Sophocles, 430*
Famous for: Twisted family relationships and some stomach-turning eye-gouging.

As if the eye-gouging in Oedipus wasn’t bad enough, we audience members also have the privilege of learning that King Oedipus had his ankles pierced when he was a little kid. Ow. The 60second Recap has the scoop on this symbol—just press play.
