Charmian. Too slow a messenger.
[Applies an asp]

Octavius. Poison'd, then.

First Guard. O Caesar,
This Charmian lived but now; she stood and spake:
I found her trimming up the diadem
On her dead mistress; tremblingly she stood
And on the sudden dropp'd.

V,2,3833

Dolabella. Here, on her breast,
There is a vent of blood and something blown:
The like is on her arm.

First Guard. This is an aspic's trail: and these fig-leaves
Have slime upon them, such as the aspic leaves
Upon the caves of Nile.
