The triadic plays (Ajax, Electra, and Oedipus Tyrannus), which in the Byzantine period are attested in many more manuscripts than the other four, have slightly more papyri, too, than the tetradic ones (10 to 7), and this difference is still more pronounced after 300 BCE (5 to 2); on the other hand, Trachiniae has more papyri overall than Electra (3 to 2). In other words, there is nothing to suggest that, before 100 BCE, any group of plays was being read, performed, and copied (henceforth just “read,” to avoid repetition) more than any other.
