Corioli. A street.
Enter certain Romans, with spoils
This will I carry to Rome.
A murrain on’t! I took this for silver.
Alarum continues still afar off
Enter MARTIUS and TITUS LARTIUS with a trumpet
See here these movers that do prize their hours
5At a crack’d drachm! Cushions, leaden spoons,
Irons of a doit, doublets that hangmen would
Bury with those that wore them, these base slaves,
Ere yet the fight be done, pack up: down with them!
And hark, what noise the general makes! To him!
10There is the man of my soul’s hate, Aufidius,
Piercing our Romans: then, valiant Titus, take
Convenient numbers to make good the city;
Whilst I, with those that have the spirit, will haste
To help Cominius.
15Worthy sir, thou bleed’st;
Thy exercise hath been too violent for
A second course of fight.
Sir, praise me not;
My work hath yet not warm’d me: fare you well:
20The blood I drop is rather physical
Than dangerous to me: to Aufidius thus
I will appear, and fight.
