Theban King Oedipus accuses jointly ruling Theban King Creon, his brother-in-law and his uncle, of trying to govern their city alone. But Creon answers that he doesn't want to wear the crown of Thebes or occupy its throne alone. He specifies that ruling alone means having to do things that he doesn't want to do. He claims that's something that doesn't appeal to him.
