Flourish. Enter Octavius Caesar, Agrippa, with Domitius Enobarbus, and others
Go forth, Agrippa, and begin the fight: Our will is Antony be took alive; Make it so known.
The time of universal peace is near: Prove this a prosperous day, the three-nook'd world Shall bear the olive freely.
Enter a Messenger
Go charge Agrippa Plant those that have revolted in the van, That Antony may seem to spend his fury Upon himself.
Exeunt all but Domitius Enobarbus
Alexas did revolt; and went to Jewry on Affairs of Antony; there did persuade Great Herod to incline himself to Caesar, And leave his master Antony: for this pains Caesar hath hang'd him. Canidius and the rest That fell away have entertainment, but No honourable trust. I have done ill; Of which I do accuse myself so sorely, That I will joy no more.
Enter a Soldier of Caesar's
Enobarbus, Antony Hath after thee sent all thy treasure, with His bounty overplus: the messenger Came on my guard; and at thy tent is now Unloading of his mules.
Mock not, Enobarbus. I tell you true: best you safed the bringer Out of the host; I must attend mine office, Or would have done't myself. Your emperor Continues still a Jove.
I am alone the villain of the earth, And feel I am so most. O Antony, Thou mine of bounty, how wouldst thou have paid My better service, when my turpitude Thou dost so crown with gold! This blows my heart: If swift thought break it not, a swifter mean Shall outstrike thought: but thought will do't, I feel. I fight against thee! No: I will go seek Some ditch wherein to die; the foul'st best fits My latter part of life.
