Abstract: One of the central aspects in the action of Euripides’ Alcestis resides in the mutually reciprocal principles of paidotrophia and gerotrophia, and in the ethical and legal obligations deriving from them. However, their application to the Euripidean drama forces the characters to face the need of developing a self-excusing argumentation, whose inconsistency and fragile legitimacy expose the partiality of their reasonings and the cowardice of Pheres’ and Admetus’ behaviour.
