ACT V. SCENE 9. 


Another part of the plain

Sound retreat. Shout. Enter AGAMEMNON, AJAX, MENELAUS, NESTOR, DIOMEDES,

and the rest, marching

 AGAMEMNON.

Hark! hark! what shout is this?

 NESTOR.

Peace, drums!

 SOLDIERS.

[Within] Achilles! Achilles! Hector's slain. Achilles!

 DIOMEDES.

The bruit is Hector's slain, and by Achilles.

 AJAX.

If it be so, yet bragless let it be;
Great Hector was as good a man as he.

 AGAMEMNON.

March patiently along. Let one be sent
To pray Achilles see us at our tent.
If in his death the gods have us befriended;
Great Troy is ours, and our sharp wars are ended.
Exeunt
