Abstract

Legends have explanatory traces of the social and political lives of the societies that create them. Measure and harmony are two concepts that dominated almost all Greek life until 8th century B.C. These concepts also take place in Greek myths that are the most important creations of Greeks. In this study Thebai Myth, which has an important place in Greek Myths, and Sophocles’ Oedipus Triology are analyzed. Furthermore, the concepts of measure and harmony are traced.
