Yes, "Seven Men Against Thebes" would be acceptable in ACF since that's a perfectly acceptable way to translate the Greek title.

From practice

Answer: Mahabharata
Me: The Twilight Zone

The lead-in (of which I flaked out on the pronoun) was talking about a guy who is rewarded for refusing to enter heaven without his dog. This is the exact plot of the Twilight Zone episode "The Hunt." Wikipedia claims the episode "resembles" the Mahabharata, so I feel somewhat vindicated.

Tossup: (Talking about piece of music)... riot at its first performance... girl danced herself to death... seasonal *BUZZ!*
Captain: Primavera

In his defense, I should have gotten it much earlier. But I decided to turn my brain off for the round instead...

Correct:H.M.S. Lusitiania
In his defense, he buzzed on "Here you see an Irish memorial to this event", and the moderator was just saying 1915 when he buzzed in.

This was a great neg if the sea people in question were, or at least partially were, from South Park, where their civilization is notably ended by religious wars and suicide bombings.
