Oedipus the King (also known as Oedipus Rex or Oedipus Tyrannus)
Oedipus at Colonus
Antigone

He wrote others, like The Progeny, which are not counted because they were not preserved.
The plays were written across thirty-six years of Sophocles'' career and were not composed in chronological order, but instead were written in the order Antigone, Oedipus the King, and Oedipus at Colonus.
