Diana. Are you prating? I will bridle thy tongue & thy power, and in spight of mine owne thoughts, I will sette thee a taske euery 90 day, which if thou finish not, thou shalt feele the smart. Thou shalt be vsed as Dianaes. slaue, not Venus sonne. All the worlde shall see that I will vse thee like a captiue, and shew my selfe a Conquerer. Come haue him in, that wee may deuise apt punishments for his proude presumptions. 95

ACTUS QUARTUS

SCÆNA PRIMA.

Enter〉 Augur, MELLEBEUS, TYTERUS, Populus.

. THis is the day wherein you must satis-fie Neptune and saue your selues; call together your fayre Daughters, and for a Sacrifice take the fayrest; for better it is to offer a Virgine then suffer ruine. If you think it against nature to sacrifice your children, thinke it also against sence to destroy your Countrey. If 5 you imagine Neptune pittilesse to desire such a pray, confesse your selues peruerse to descrue such a punishment. You see this tree, this fatall Tree, whose leaues though they glister like golde, yet it threatneth to fayre virgins griefe. To this Tree must the beautifullest be bounde vntill the Monster Agar carry her awaie, and if the 10 Monster come not, then assure your selues that the fairest is concealed, and then your countrey shall be destroyed; therefore consult with your selues, not as fathers of children, but as fauourers of your Countrey. Let Neptune haue his right if you will haue your quiet; thus haue I warned you to be carefull, and would wish you to be 15 wise, knowing that who so hath the fairest daughter, hath the greatest fortune, in loosing one to saue all; and so I depart to prouide ceremonies for the Sacrifice, and commaund you to bring the Sacrifice.

Augur

Exit Augur.

Meleb. They say Tyterus that you haue a faire daughter: if it be so, dissemble not, for you shall be a fortunate father. It is a thing 20 holy to preserue ones Country, and honorable to be the cause.
