    Troilus and Cressida (Folio 1, 1623)

    Enter Agamemnon, Aiax, Menelaus, Nestor,
    Diomed, and the rest marching.
    Aga. Harke, harke, what shout is that?
    Nest. Peace Drums.
    3525Sold. Achilles, Achilles, Hector's slaine, Achilles.
    Dio. The bruite is, Hector's slaine, and by Achilles.
    Aia. If it be so, yet braglesse let it be:
    Great Hector was a man as good as he.
    Agam. March patiently along; let one be sent
    3530To pray Achilles see vs at our Tent.
    If in his death the gods haue vs befrended,
    Great Troy is ours, and our sharpe wars are ended.
