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
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
