Act I. Scene VII.

Scene VII.—The Gates of Corioli.

TITUS LARTIUS, having set a guard upon
CORIOLI, going with drum and trumpet to-
wards COMINIUS and CAIUS MARCIUS, enters
with a Lieutenant, a party of Soldiers, and a
Scout.

Lart. So; let the ports be guarded: keep
your duties,
As I have set them down. If I do send, dis-
patch
Those centuries to our aid; the rest will serve
For a short holding: if we lose the field,
We cannot keep the town.
Lieu. Fear not our care, sir.
Lart. Hence, and shut your gates upon us.
Our guider, come; to the Roman camp conduct
us. [Exeunt.
