Thebes is a city of Beoetia. The city of Oedipus and the sphinx. The legend says that, the mother earth, angry with humans for their massive procreation and excessive explotaition of her resources, asked Zeus to exterminate a part of the population. Zeus wanted to provoque cataclysms and catastrophs; but advised by Momo, the greek personification of the sarcasm, brought about a war between the two Oedipus sons for the succession of the throne. This is the beginning of the 7 against Thebes war.
The 7 chiefs believing themselves superior arrived in front of the Thebes walls sure to have a quick victory, but the city resisted and at the end they losed. Years later the sons of the 7, the Epigonoi, came back to revenge the death of their fathers and presented war again. When they were old, they reached the theban citadel , leaving backwards a very long time of war and death.
