Enter CLEOPATRA, CHARAITAN, and IRAS.
Cleo. My desolation does begin to make
A better life. 'Tis paltry to be Cæsar;
Not being Fortune, he's but Fortune's knave,1
A minister of her will: and it is great
To d o that thing that ends all other deeds;
Which shackels accidents, and bolts up change;
Which sleeps, and never palates more the dung,
The beggar's nurse and Cæsar's.2
Enter, to the gales of the monunment, PROCULEIUS, GALLUS,
Pro. Cæsar sends greeting to the Queen of Egypt;____________________
