ANTONY and CLEOPATRA.

. ACT I.

SCENE I. Alexandria.
A Room in Cleopatra's Palace.
Enter Thyreus, and Dolabella;
sent from Cæsar.

Thy. Nay, but this dotage of our general's
O'erflows the measure: those his goodly eyes,
That o'er the files and musters of the war
Have glow'd like plated Mars, now bend, now turn,
The office and devotion of their view
Upon a tawny front: his captain's heart,
Which in the scuffles of great fights hath burst
The buckles on his breast, reneges all temper;
And is become the bellows, and the fan,
To cool a gipsy's lust. Look, where they come:
Flourish. Enter Antony, Cleopatra, and
their Trains; Eunuchs fanning her.
Take but good note, and you shall see in him
The triple pillar of the world transform'd
Into a strumpet's fool: behold, and see.

Cle. If it be love indeed, tell me how much.
