Trumpets sound. Enter Anthony, and Eros.
Eros. The Gods make this a happy day to Anthony.
Ant. Would thou, & those thy scars had once preuaild
2555To make me fight at Land.

The Kings that haue reuolted, and the Soldier
That has this morning left thee, would haue still
Followed thy heeles.
2560Ant. Whose gone this morning?
Eros. Who? one euer neere thee, call for Enobarbus,
He shall not heare thee, or from sars Campe,
Say I am none of thine.
Ant. What sayest thou?

Eros. Sir, his Chests and Treasure he has not with him.
Ant. Is he gone?
Sol. Most certaine.
Ant. Go Eros, send his Treasure after, do it,
2570Detaine no iot I charge thee: write to him,
(I will subscribe) gentle adieu's, and greetings;
Say, that I wish he neuer finde more cause
To change a Master. Oh my Fortunes haue
Corrupted honest men. Dispatch Enobarbus.
