Hēkabē is a tragedy by Euripides written c. 424 BC. It takes place after the Trojan War, but before the Greeks have departed Troy. The central figure is Hēkabē, wife of King Priam, formerly Queen of the now-fallen city. It depicts Hēkabē's grief over the death of her daughter Polyxena, and the revenge she takes for the murder of her youngest son Polydorus.
