Hath Dorens Prisoner,
And stands, Colossus wise, waving his Beam,
Upon the pashed coarses of the Kings,
Epistropus and Cedus : Polyxines is Nain;
Amphimachus and Thous deadly hurt;
Patroclus ta'en or slain, and Palamedes
Sore hurt and bruised; the dreadful Sagittary
Appals our Numbers, haste we, Diomede,
To Reinforcement, or we perilh all.

Enter Nestor,
Neft. Go bear Patroclus's Body to Achilles,
And bid the Snail-pac'd Ajax arm for shame,
There are a thousand Hectors in the field :
Now here he fights on Galathe his Horse,
And there lacks work; anon he's there a-foot,
And there they fly or dye, like scaled Sculls,
Before the belching Whale : Then is he yonder,
And there the straying Greeks, ripe for his edge,
Fall down before him, like the Mower's Swath;
Here, there, and every where, he leaves and takes ;
Dexterity so obeying Appetite,
That what he will

, he does, and does so much, That Proof is call’d Impossibility.

Enter Ulysses.
Vys. Oh, Courage, Courage, Princes; great Achilles
Is arming, weeping, curling, vowing Vengeance ;
Patroclus's Wounds have rouz’d his drow lie Blood,
Together with his mangled Myrmidons,
That noseless, handless, hackt and chipt, come to him,
Crying on Hector. Ajax hath loft a Friend,
And foams at Mouth, and he is arm’d, and at it,
Roaring for Troilus, who hath done to Day
Mad and fantastick Execution,
Engaging and redeeming of himself,
With

such a careless Force, and forceless Care, As if that Luck, in very spight of Cunning, bad him win al'

. Enter Ajax. Ajax. Troilus, thou Coward, Troilus.

Enter Ajax.
Ajax. Troilus, thou Coward Troilus, fhew thy Head.

Enter Diomede.
Dio. Troilus, I say, where's Troilus?
Ajax. What would'st thon?
Dio. I would correct him.

Ajax. Were I the General,
Thou should'st have my Office,
E'er that Corre&ion: Troilus, I say, what, Troilus?

Enter Troilus.
Troi. Oh Traitor Diomede!
Turn thy false Face, thou Traitor,
And pay thy Life, thou owest me for

my

Horse. Dio. Ha, art thou there? Ajax. l'll fight with him alone, stand, Diomede. Dio. He is my prize, I will not look upon. Troi. Come, both you cogging Greeks, have at you both.

[Exennt fighting Enter Hector, Hett. Yea, Troilus? O well fought, my youngest Brother.

Enter Achilles.
Achil. Now do I see thee; have at thee, Hector,
Hect. Pause, if thou wilt.

[Fight.
Achil. I do disdain thy Courtefie, proud Trojan,
Be happy that my Arms are out of use:
My rest and negligence befriend thee now,
But thou anon Thalt hear of me again :
'Till when, go seek thy Fortune.

Helt. Fare thee well;
I would have been much more a fresher Man,
Had I expe&ed thee; how now, my Brother?

Enter Troilus.
Troi. Ajax hath ta'en Æneas; shall it be?
No, by the flame of yonder glorious Heaven
He shall not carry him: I'll be taken too,

Or

Or bring him off: Fate, hear me what I say;
I wreak not, though thou end my Life to Day.

[Exit

, Enter one in Armor. Het. Stand, stand, thou Greek, Thou art a goodly Mark : No? wilt thou not? I like thy Armour well, I'll frush it, and unlock the Rivets all, But I'll be Master of it ; wilt thou not, Beast, abide? Why then fly on, I'll hunt thee for thy Hide. [Exit

. Enter Achilles with Myrmidons. Achil. Come here about me, you my Myrmidons: Mark what I say, attend me where I wheel; Strike not a stroke, but keep your selves in Breath; And when I have the bloody Hector found, Empale him with your Weapons round about : In fellest manner execute your Arms, Follow me, Sirs, and my proceeding Eye; It is decreed-Hetor the Great must die. [Exit

. Enter Thersites, Menelaus and Paris. Ther. The Cuckold, and the Cuckold-maker are at it: Now Bull, now Dog; 'loo, Paris, "loo; now my double hen'd Sparrow; 'loo, Paris, 'loo; the Bull has the Game: 'ware Horns, ho.

[Exit Paris and Menelaus.

Enter Bastard.
Baft. Turn, Slave, and fight.
Ther. What art thou?
Baft. A Bastard Son of Priam's.

Ther. I am a Bastard too, I love Bastards, I am a Bastard begot, Bastard instructed, Bastard in Mind, Bastard in Valour, in every thing Illegitimate : One Bear will not bite another, and wherefore should one Bastard ? Take heed, the Quarrel's most ominous to us : If the Son of a Whore fight for a Whore, he tempts Judgment: Farewel, Bastard. Baft. The Devil take the Coward.

[Exeunt

. Enter Hedor. Helt. Most putrified Core! so fair without : mhy goodly Armor thus hath cost thy Life. Now is my day's work done; I'll take good Breath : Left Sword, thou hast thy fill of Blood and Death.

Enter

Euter Achilles, and his Myrmidons.
Achil. Look, He&tor, how the Sun begins to set ;
How ugly Night comes breathing at his Heels:
Even with the veil and darking of the Sun,
To close the Day up, Hector's Life is done.

They fall spon He&or and kill him.
He&t. I am unarm’d, forego this vantage, Greek.

Achil. Strike, Fellows, strike, this is the Man I seek.
So, Ilion, fall thou: Now, Troy, link down:
Here lies thy Heart, thy Sinews and thy Bone.
On, Myrmidons, cry you all amain,
Achilles hath the mighty Hector Nain.

[Retreat. Hark, a Retreat upon our Grecian part.

Mgr. The Trojan Trumpets found the like, my Lord.

Achil. The dragon Wing of Night o'er spreads the Earth, And, Stickler-like, the Armies separates ; My half supt Sword, that frankly would have fed, Pleas’d with this dainty Bit, thus goes to Bed. Come, tye his Body to my Horse's Tail: Along the Field, I will the Trojan trail. [Exeunt.

[Sound Retreat. Shomt. Enter Agamemnon, Ajax, Menelaus, Nestor, Diomede,

and the rest marching,
Aga. Hark, hark, what shout is that?
Neft. Peace, Drums.
Sol. Achilles ! Achilles ! Hector's Nain, Achilles !-
Dio. The Bruit is, Hector's Nain, and by Achilles.

Ajax. If it be so, yet bragless let it be:
Great Hector was as good a Man as he.

Aga. March patiently along; let one be sent
To pray Achilles see us at our Tent.
If in his Death the Gods have us befriended,
Great Troy is ours, and our sharp Wars are ended.

[Exeunt.
Enter Æneas, Paris, Antenor and Deiphobus.
Æne. Stand ho, yet are we Masters of the Field,
Never go home, here starve we out the Night.

Enter Troilus.
Troi. Helor is lain.
All. Heltor!
-the Gods forbid !

Tu.

Troi. He's dead, and at the Murtherer's Horse's Tail,
In bcastly sort dragg'd through the shameful Field.
Frown on, you Heavens, effe, your rage with speed:
Sit Gods upon your Thrones, and smile at Troy.
I say at once, let your brief Plagues be Mercy,
And linger not our fure Destructions on.

Æne. My Lord, you do discomfort all the Hoft.

Troi. You understand me not, that tell me so:
I do not speak of fight, of fear, of Death,
But dare all imminence, that Gods and Men
Address their Dangers in. Hector is gone:
Who shall tell Priam so? or Hecuba?
Let him that will a Scrietch-Owl ay be callid,
Go in to Troy, and say there, Hector's dead:
There is a word will Priam turn to Stone;
Make Wells, and Niobes of the Maids and Wives;
Cool Statues of the Youth; and, in a Word,
Scare Troy out of self. But march away,
Hector is dead: There is no more to say.
Stay yet, you vile abominable Tents,
Thus proudly pight upon our Phrygian Plains:
Let Titan risé, as early as he dare,
I'll through and through you. And thou great

Giz'd Coward
No space of Earth Mall (under our two Hates,
I'll haunt thee, like a wicked Conscience still,
That mouldeth Goblins swift as Frenfies thoughts,
Strike a free march to Troy, with comfort go:
Hope of revenge shall hide our inward Woe.

Enter Pandarus.
Pan. But hear you, hear you?
Troi. Hence, Brothel, Lačky, Ignominy and Shame

[Strikes him.

[Exeunt.

Pursue thy Life, and live aye with thy Name.

Pan. A goodly med'cine for mine aking Bones : Oh World! World! World! thus is the poor Agent despis'd : Oh, Traitors and Bawds; how earnestly are you set at Work, and how ill requited? why should our Endeavour be fo desir'd, and the Performance so loath'd ? What Verse for it? what instance for it? Let me see
