    Troilus and Cressida (Folio 1, 1623)

    Enter Achilles with Myrmidons.
    3470Achil. Come here about me you my Myrmidons:
    Marke what I say; attend me where I wheele:
    Strike not a stroake, but keepe your selues in breath;
    And when I haue the bloudy Hector found,
    Empale him with your weapons round about:
    3475In fellest manner execute your arme.
    Follow me sirs, and my proceedings eye;
    It is decreed, Hector the great must dye.
