Cæs. For Antony,
I have no ears to his request. The Queen
Of audience nor desire shall fail, so she
From Egypt drive her all-disgracéd friend,
Or take his life there: this if she perform,
She shall not sue unheard. So to them both.

Euph. Fortune pursue thee!

Cæs. Bring him through the bands. --
[Exit EUPHRONIUS.

[To THYREUS.] To try thy eloquence, now 'tis time: dispatch;
From Antony win Cleopatra: promise,
And in our name, what she requires; add more
Offers from thine invention: women are not
In their best fortunes strong; but want will perjure
The ne'er touch'd vestal. Try thy cunning, Thyreus;
Make thine own edict for thy pains, which we
Will answer as a law.

Thyr. Cæsar, I go.

Cæs. Observe how Antony becomes his flaw,4
And what thou think'st his very action speaks
In every power that moves.

Thyr. Cæsar, I shall. [Exeunt.


SCENE XIII. -- Alexandria. A Room in CLEOPATRA'S Palace.

Enter CLEOPATRA, ENOBARBUS, CHARMIAN, and IRAS.

Cleo. What shall we do, Enobarbus?

Eno. Think, and die.1
