The Persian king, Cyrus, declares war on Croesus, King of Lydia. Croesus is defeated and taken prisoner. He is about to be put to death when his son Atis, who previously was unable to speak, suddenly finds he has the power of speech and shouts at his father’s captors. Croesus is spared but taken to Cyrus who imprisons him. Meanwhile, Atis and Halimacus, his interreter, hatch a plot. Atis will pretend to be a captured Persian soldier who closely resembles the Prince but, unlike him, can speak. Assuming the name of Ermin, Atis returns to the Lydian court to bring the news of the king’s capture. Prince Eliates has been left in charge and sets about finding a ransom for Croesus.
Elmira, who, with her mother, the former Queen of Media, has been rescued by Croesus after their country has been conquered by Cyrus, is in love with Atis and he with her. Prince Orsanes desires Elmira, who spurns him; he himself is desired by Clerida, but he spurns her, and Clerida is desired by Eliates, to whom she is indifferent. Orsanes, seeing a way to further his own ambitions, suggests that ‘Ermin’ should pretend to be Atis, and can then declare himself, via Halimacus, unfit to rule because of his speechlessness, and cede the throne to Orsanes. He must also kill Atis. ‘Ermin’ agrees and next day appears at court as the dumb Prince. Elmira is upset when ‘Ermin’ gives her a letter in Atis' handwriting in which he says that he is happy for her to take ‘Ermin’ as a lover. Atis then reveals his true identiy but she is confused and does not believe him.
Despite being offered a ransom, Cyrus prepares to execute Croesus. Atis offers himself as an alternative victim, but Cyrus is implacable. Solon, the philosopher, points out that, as Croesus' pride caused him to fall so may Cyrus’ pride. Cyrus relents, a chastened Croesus is restored to his throne, Elmira and Atis embrace, Orsanes is discomfited, Clerida turns to Eliates and everyone rejoices.
