Another Part of the Plains.
Enter AGAMEMNON, AJAX, MENELAUS, NESTOR, DIOMEDES, and Others marching. Shouts within.
| Agam. Hark! hark! what shout is that?|
| Nest. Peace, drums! [Within.] Achilles!|
|Achilles! Hectors slain! Achilles!|| 5|
| Dio. The bruit is, Hectors slain, and by Achilles.|
| Ajax. If it be so, yet bragless let it be;|
|Great Hector was a man as good as he.|
| Agam. March patiently along. Let one be sent|
|To pray Achilles see us at our tent.|| 10|
|If in his death the gods have us befriended,|
|Great Troy is ours, and our sharp wars are ended. [Exeunt marching.|
