Alexandria, Cleopatra's palace. Enter Cleopatra, Charmian, Iras, and Mardian.
Cleo. Help me, my women! O, he is more mad
Than Telamon for his shield; the boar of Thessaly

Char. To the monument!

The soul and body rive not more in parting
Than greatness going off.
Cleo. To the monument!
Mardian, go tell him I have slain myself;
Say that the last I spoke was ' Antony,'

The same. Another room. Enter Antony and Eros.
Ant. Eros, thou yet behold'st me?
Eros. Ay, noble lord.
Ant. Sometime we see a cloud that's dragonish,
A vapour sometime like a bear or lion,
A tower'd citadel, a pendent rock,
A forked mountain, or blue promontory
