ACT III. SCENE IX.

ALEXANDRIA; THE PALACE.

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 head's declin'd, and death will seize her; but
Your comfort makes the rescue.
Ant. I have offended reputation ;
A most unnoble swerving.
Eros. Sir, the queen.
Ant. O, whither hast thou led me, Egypt?
See, How I convey my shame out of thine eyes
By looking back on what I have left behind 'Stroy'd in dishonour.

Painted by Henry Tresham, R. A. Engraved by George Sigmund and John Gottlieb Facius.
