TITUS LARTIUS, having set a
|LARTIUS||So, let the ports be guarded: keep your duties,
As I have set them down. If I do send, dispatch
Those centuries to our aid: the rest will serve
For a short holding: if we lose the field,
We cannot keep the town.
|Lieutenant||Fear not our care, sir.|
|LARTIUS||Hence, and shut your gates upon's.
Our guider, come; to the Roman camp conduct us.
|MARCIUS||I'll fight with none but thee; for I do hate thee
Worse than a promise-breaker.
|AUFIDIUS||We hate alike:
Not Afric owns a serpent I abhor
More than thy fame and envy. Fix thy foot.
|MARCIUS||Let the first budger die the other's slave,
And the gods doom him after!
|AUFIDIUS||If I fly, Marcius,
Holloa me like a hare.
|MARCIUS||Within these three hours, Tullus,
Alone I fought in your Corioli walls,
And made what work I pleased: 'tis not my blood
Wherein thou seest me mask'd; for thy revenge
Wrench up thy power to the highest.
|AUFIDIUS||Wert thou the Hector
That was the whip of your bragg'd progeny,
Thou shouldst not scape me here.
|[They fight, and certain Volsces come to the aid of
AUFIDIUS. MARCIUS fights till they be driven in
|Officious, and not valiant, you have shamed me
In your condemned seconds.
