Shim’ei (2 syl.),
 
in Dryden’s satire of Absalom and Achitophel, is designed for Slingsby Bethel, the lord mayor.   1
       
“Shimei, whose youth did early promise bring,
Of zeal to God and hatred to his king;
Did wisely from expensive sins refrain,
And never broke the Sabbath but for gain.”
       
Part 1, lines 548–551.
