In "Antigone", when King Creon, who had commanded that the body of Polyneices not be buried and left outside to rot, learned that someone had disobeyed orders and buried him. He immediately commanded the guard who brought him the news to bring him the person responsible.
because he thought that he would bring news
The sentry brings news that the body of Polyneices has had dust spread over it so that it may pass safely through to the underworld. Creon is overtaken with rage and tells the messenger that if he doesn't find who did this than he would be killed.
Creon tells the guard to go find who is responsible for burying Polynises. If the guard does not find who is responsible with in a certain amount of time, the guard will suffer the consequences of a slow, painful death in place of the person who buried Polynises.
The guard and sentry report it to him.
It is by drawing lots that the guards decide who will bring news to Creon in "Antigone" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.).Specifically, the guards discover Polyneices' body partially buried under a layer of dust. Polyneices is considered a Theban traitor for attacking Thebes in an assertion of his legitimate claims to the Theban throne. The guards know that Theban King Creon will be upset by news of the body being buried and his non-burial edict being broken. They think of drawing lots as the way to choose the bearer of bad news to a hot-tempered royal.
That he brings good news is what the draping of berries and bay upon Creon indicates when Creon returns from Delphi in "Oedipus Rex" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.).Specifically, Creon goes to Delphi to consult with the Pythia. He has good news to share because the Delphic oracle tells him how to end the pestilence in Thebes. The people see that the news is favorable because of what Creon wears in his hair.
That the body of Polyneices is buried is the news that the guard brings in "Antigone" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.E.C.).Specifically, Theban King Creon issues an edict that denies to certain Thebans god-given rights to below-ground burials and proper funeral rites. He knows the edict to be unpopular and therefore posts guards to make sure that no Theban whom he considers disloyal will be buried. It therefore upsets him to hear about the civil disobedience.
Theban King Oedipus insists that his uncle and brother-in-law, Theban King Creon, share in public the news from Apollo the sun god's shrine. He sends Creon to find out what can be done to end the pestilence that affects Thebes' livestock, harvests, and birth rate. Creon prefers to share the news first and in private with Oedipus. But Oedipus wants his people to hear the breaking news.
The guard returns to tell the king after she is found burying her brother.
yes he does. sentry when he finds dirt on the body and teiresias when he talking to Creon about his fate if he goes thru with the punishment of Antigone
That he is ordered to share his information publicly is what happens when Creon returns from Delphi in "Oedipus Rex" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.).Specifically, Theban King Oedipus asks Creon to consult with the Delphic oracle about how to end the pestilence. Creon comes back with a wreath on his head, a sign of good news. Oedipus demands that Creon share his news immediately in public instead of first in private inside the palace.
That Polyneices' body is buried and that the perpetrator is long gone is the news that the sentry brings on his first visit to Creon in "Antigone" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.).Specifically, Theban King Creon denies to his perceived enemies their god-given rights as Thebans to below ground burials. He enforces his prohibition by a royal edict. He has guards posted immediately after making the edict public. But a sentry lets Creon know that his edict already is violated and that Creon's disgraced nephew Polyneices' body already is covered with a dusty layer that constitutes a partial burial.
To save himself from the king's threat to kill him if he does not find the culprit.
Drawing lots is the way in which the sentries decide which one brings the news about Polyneices to Creon in "Antigone" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.).Specifically, the sentries find Polyneices' body partially buried under a layer of dust. A partial burial is still a burial. This violates Theban King Creon's edict of non-burial of the disloyal Theban dead, and the sentries are terrified about what happens to the messenger who brings bad news to the stubborn monarch of Thebes.
It is Antigone that the sentry captures and brings before Creon in "Antigone" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.).Specifically, Theban King Creon announces that the disloyal Theban dead will be denied their god-given rights as Thebans to below ground burials. He assigns sentries to guard the unburied bodies. The sentries catch Princess Antigone in the act of giving her brother Polyneices' body a second partial burial and anointing.

Yes, Creon returns from Delphi before Oedipus accuses him of conspiracy in "Oedipus Rex" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.).Specifically, Theban King Oedipus asks his brother-in-law and royal colleague, Creon, to go to Delphi. Creon comes back and shares his news from the Delphic oracle. Shortly thereafter, Oedipus gets angry over other related news that he dislikes. Based on the two pieces of information, Oedipus makes the accusation that Creon is conspiring to grab royal powers for himself.
