Best Answer

That she is foolish, replaceable and worthy of her punishment is what Creon has to say about Antigone in "Antigone" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.).

Specifically, Theban King Creon finds a lot to dislike in his niece, Princess Antigone. He sees her as having a lifelong track record for foolishness and uncontrolled emotional outbursts. He views her as completely replaceable by a female more deserving of the affections of Prince Haemon, Antigone's betrothed and Creon's only surviving child. He wishes her the worst and considers her death sentence a fitting way for her to end her life.
