    Troilus and Cressida (Quarto 1, 1609)

    Enter Achilles with Myrmidons.
    3470Come here about me you my Myrmidons,
    Marke what I say, attend me where I wheele:
    Strike not a stroke, but keepe yourselues in breth,
    And when I haue the bloudy Hector found:
    Empale him with your weapons round about,
    3475In fellest manner execut your armes
    Follow me sirs and my proceedings eye,
    It is decreed Hector the great must die.
