In the play, the Danaids, the fifty daughters of Danaus, founder of
Argos, flee a forced marriage to their cousins in Egypt. They turn
to King Pelasgus of Argos for protection, but Pelasgus refuses
until the people of Argos weigh in on the decision, a distinctly
democratic move on the part of the king. The people decide that the
Danaids deserve protection, and they are allowed within the walls
of Argos despite Egyptian protests.
