The same. A street near the gate.
Enter SICINIUS, BRUTUS, and an Aedile
Bid them all home; he’s gone, and we’ll no further.
The nobility are vex’d, whom we see have sided
In his behalf.
Now we have shown our power,
5Let us seem humbler after it is done
Than when it was a-doing.
Bid them home:
Say their great enemy is gone, and they
Stand in their ancient strength.
10Dismiss them home.
Let’s not meet her.
They say she’s mad.
15They have ta’en note of us: keep on your way.
Enter VOLUMNIA, VIRGILIA, and MENENIUS
O, ye’re well met: the hoarded plague o’ the gods
Requite your love!
Peace, peace; be not so loud.
If that I could for weeping, you should hear,—
20Nay, and you shall hear some.
