1

I,1,232

Where's Caius CORIOLANUS?

2

I,1,234

The news is, sir, the Volsces are in arms.

3

I,4,484

They lie in view; but have not spoke as yet.

4

I,4,490

Within this mile and half.

5

I,6,622

The citizens of Corioli have issued,
And given to TITUS and to CORIOLANUS battle:
I saw our party to their trenches driven,
And then I came away.

6

I,6,629

Above an hour, my lord.

7

I,6,633

Spies of the Volsces
Held me in chase, that I was forced to wheel
Three or four miles about, else had I, sir,
Half an hour since brought my report.

8

II,1,1210

You are sent for to the Capitol. 'Tis thought
That CORIOLANUS shall be consul:
I have seen the dumb men throng to see him and
The blind to bear him speak: matrons flung gloves,
Ladies and maids their scarfs and handkerchers,
Upon him as he pass'd: the nobles bended,
As to Jove's statue, and the commons made
A shower and thunder with their caps and shouts:
I never saw the like.

9

IV,6,3084

The nobles in great earnestness are going
All to the senate-house: some news is come
That turns their countenances.

10

IV,6,3090

Yes, worthy sir,
The slave's report is seconded; and more,
More fearful, is deliver'd.

11

IV,6,3094

It is spoke freely out of many mouths—
How probable I do not know—that CORIOLANUS,
Join'd with Aufidius, leads a power 'gainst Rome,
And vows revenge as spacious as between
The young'st and oldest thing.

12

V,4,3766

Sir, if you'ld save your life, fly to your house:
The plebeians have got your fellow-tribune
And hale him up and down, all swearing, if
The Roman ladies bring not comfort home,
They'll give him death by inches.
