Timon of Athens (Folio 1, 1623)


Enter a Souldier in the Woods, seeking Timon.
Sol. By all description this should be the place.
Whose heere? Speake hoa. No answer? What is this?
Tymon is dead, who hath out-stretcht his span,
2500Some Beast reade this; There do's not liue a Man.
Dead sure, and this his Graue, what's on this Tomb,
I cannot read: the Charracter Ile take with wax,
Our Captaine hath in euery Figure skill;
An ag'd Interpreter, though yong in dayes:
2505Before proud Athens hee's set downe by this,
Whose fall the marke of his Ambition is.
Exit.
