    Troilus and Cressida (Modern)

    Enter Achilles with Myrmidons.
    3470Achilles Come here about me, you, my Myrmidons.
    Mark what I say; attend me where I wheel;
    Strike not a stroke, but keep yourselves in breath,
    And when I have the bloody Hector found,
    Impale him with your weapons round about;
    3475In fellest manner execute your arms.
    Follow me, sirs, and my proceedings eye;
    It is decreed, Hector the great must die.
    Exit [with Myrmidons].
