TrGF III fr. **99 has been tentatively assigned to the Kares/ Europe of Aischylos by modern researchers. Recently, however, West has drawn attention to certain discrepancies between TrGF III fr. **99 and the rest of the surviving Aischylean corpus and, as a result, questioned the authorship of the Kares/ Europe. The basis of West’s challenge is metrical, linguistic and dramaturgical evidence from TrGF III fr. **99. The current study feels that there is no reason to question the authorship of the play, though there is good reason to revive the question of the assignment of the fragment to the play. The possibility of disengaging the authorship of the Kares/ Europe from the assignment of TrGF III fr. **99 to the play is discussed in this article.
