IV,14,3125

(stage directions). [Enter DIOMEDES]

Diomedes. Where's Antony?


2

IV,14,3127

Dercetas. There, Diomed there.

Diomedes. Lives he?
Wilt thou not answer, man?


3

IV,14,3132

Antony. Art thou there, Diomed? Draw thy sword, and give me
Sufficing strokes for death.

Diomedes. Most absolute lord,
My mistress Cleopatra sent me to thee.


4

IV,14,3135

Antony. When did she send thee?

Diomedes. Now, my lord.


5

IV,14,3137

Antony. Where is she?

Diomedes. Lock'd in her monument. She had a prophesying fear
Of what hath come to pass: for when she saw—
Which never shall be found—you did suspect
She had disposed with Caesar, and that your rage
Would not be purged, she sent you word she was dead;
But, fearing since how it might work, hath sent
Me to proclaim the truth; and I am come,
I dread, too late.


6

IV,14,3146

Antony. Too late, good Diomed: call my guard, I prithee.

Diomedes. What, ho, the emperor's guard! The guard, what, ho!
Come, your lord calls!

IV,15,3172

Cleopatra. No, I will not:
All strange and terrible events are welcome,
But comforts we despise; our size of sorrow,
Proportion'd to our cause, must be as great
As that which makes it.
[Enter, below, DIOMEDES]
How now! is he dead?

Diomedes. His death's upon him, but not dead.
Look out o' the other side your monument;
His guard have brought him thither.
