    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.
