The same. The Forum.
Enter SICINIUS and BRUTUS
In this point charge him home, that he affects
Tyrannical power: if he evade us there,
Enforce him with his envy to the people,
And that the spoil got on the Antiates
5Was ne’er distributed.
Enter an Aedile
With old Menenius, and those senators
10That always favour’d him.
Have you a catalogue
Of all the voices that we have procured
Set down by the poll?
I have; ’tis ready.
15Have you collected them by tribes?
Assemble presently the people hither;
And when they bear me say ‘It shall be so
I’ the right and strength o’ the commons,’ be it either
20For death, for fine, or banishment, then let them
If I say fine, cry ‘Fine;’ if death, cry ‘Death.’
Insisting on the old prerogative
And power i’ the truth o’ the cause.
