Cleon. There's no contending,
For this time I am pleaƒ'd, but I'll no more on't. Exeunt.


ACTVS I.

SCAENA III.

Archidamus, Cleon, Diphilus, Olimpia, Coriƒca, Cleora, Zanthia.

Archidamus. So careleƒƒe we haue beene, my noble Lords,
In the diƒpoƒing of our owne affaires,
And ignorant in the Art of gouernment,
That now we need a ƒtranger to inƒtruct vs.

Yet we are happy, that our neighbour Corinth5
(Pittying the vniuƒt gripe Carthage would lay
On Siracuƒa) hath vouchƒafed to lend vs
Her man of men Timoleon to defend
Our Country, and our Liberties.

Diphilus. Tis a fauour

We are vnworthy of, and we may bluƒh, 10
Nece­ity compels vs to receiue it.

Archid. O ƒhame! that we that are a populous Nation,
Ingag'd to liberal! nature, for all bleƒƒings
An Iland can bring forth; we that haue limbs

And able bodies; Shipping, Armes, and Treaƒure, 15
The ƒinnewes of the Warre, now we are call'd To ƒtand vpon our Guard, cannot produce
One fit to be our Generall.

Cleon. I am olde and fat,
I could ­ay ƒomething elƒe.

Archid. We muƒt obey

The time, and our occaƒions, ruinous buildings, 20
Whoƒe baƒes and foundations are infirme Mu­t vƒe ƒupporters; we are circled round
With danger, o're our heads with ƒayle ƒtretch'd wings,
De­truction houers; and a cloud of miƒchiefe
Ready to breake vpon vs; no hope left vs 25
That may diuert it, but our ƒleeping vertue Row­d vp by braue Timoleon.

Cleon. When arriues he?
