‘The Palace in Alexandria. Antony, Cleopatra, Eros, Charmian, Iras, &c.’
Eros. The Queen, my lord, the Queen.
Iras. Go to him, madam; speak to him; / He is unqualitied with very shame.
Cleo. Well then. – Sustain me: – O!
Eros. Most noble sir, arise, the Queen approaches; / Her heart’s declin’d and death will seize her: but / Your comfort makes the rescue.
Ant. I have offended reputation; / A most unnoble swerving.
