The children of Heracles are on the run from Eurystheus and hiding in Athens. They are found and their surrender is ordered. When the king of Athens refuses to hand them over to Eurystheus' emissary, war is declared on Athens. A maiden, Heracles' daughter, Macaria, offers her life as a sacrifice to help the Athenians win the war.
