    Troilus and Cressida (Quarto 1, 1609)

    Enter Agam: Aiax, Mene: Nestor, Diom:
    and the rest marching.
    Aga. Hark, harke, what is this?
    Nest. Peace drums.
    3525Sould: within. Achilles, Achilles, Hectors slaine Achilles.
    Dio. The bruite is Hectors slaine and by Achilles.
    Aiax. If it be so yet braglesse let it bee,
    Great Hector was as good a man as he.
    Aga. March patiently along: let one bee sent,
    3530To pray Achilles see vs at our tent:
    If in his death the Gods haue vs befriended.
    Great Troy is ours, and our sharpe wars are ended.
