About 16 fragments of Euripides' lost Antiope can be placed in a debate between Zethus and Amphion, twins born to Zeus by Antiope and destined to rule Thebes.

Zethus never came close to its self-described goal of "creating a NASDAQ market for real properties." The company failed to deliver a publicly accessible site before declaring Chapter Seven bankruptcy.
