William Shakespeare (1564–1616).  The Oxford Shakespeare.  1914.
 
Timon of Athens
 
Act V. Scene III.
 
The Woods.  TIMON’S Cave, and a rude Tomb seen.
 
Enter a Soldier, seeking TIMON.
  Sold.  By all description this should be the place.
Who’s here? speak, ho! No answer! What is this?
Timon is dead, who hath outstretch’d his span:        5
Some beast rear’d this; here does not live a man.
Dead, sure; and this his grave. What’s on this tomb
I cannot read; the character I’ll take with wax:
Our captain hath in every figure skill;
An ag’d interpreter, though young in days.        10
Before proud Athens he’s set down by this,
Whose fall the mark of his ambition is.  [Exit.
