	[Enter AJAX]

AJAX: Troilus, thou coward Troilus, show thy head!

	[Enter DIOMEDES]

DIOMEDES: Troilus, I say! where's Troilus?

AJAX: What wouldst thou?

DIOMEDES: I would correct him.

AJAX: Were I the general, thou shouldst have my office
	Ere that correction. Troilus, I say! what, Troilus!

	[Enter TROILUS]

TROILUS: O traitor Diomed! turn thy false face, thou traitor,
	And pay thy life thou owest me for my horse!

DIOMEDES: Ha, art thou there?

AJAX: I'll fight with him alone: stand, Diomed.

DIOMEDES: He is my prize; I will not look upon.

TROILUS: Come, both you cogging Greeks; have at you both!

	[Exeunt, fighting]

	[Enter HECTOR]

HECTOR: Yea, Troilus? O, well fought, my youngest brother!

	[Enter ACHILLES]

ACHILLES: Now do I see thee, ha! have at thee, Hector!

HECTOR: Pause, if thou wilt.

ACHILLES: I do disdain thy courtesy, proud Trojan:
	Be happy that my arms are out of use:
	My rest and negligence befriends thee now,
	But thou anon shalt hear of me again;
	Till when, go seek thy fortune.

	[Exit]

HECTOR: Fare thee well:
	I would have been much more a fresher man,
	Had I expected thee. How now, my brother!

	[Re-enter TROILUS]

TROILUS: Ajax hath ta'en AEneas: shall it be?
	No, by the flame of yonder glorious heaven,
	He shall not carry him: I'll be ta'en too,
	Or bring him off: fate, hear me what I say!
	I reck not though I end my life to-day.

	[Exit]

	[Enter one in sumptuous armour]

HECTOR: Stand, stand, thou Greek; thou art a goodly mark:
	No? wilt thou not? I like thy armour well;
	I'll frush it and unlock the rivets all,
	But I'll be master of it: wilt thou not,
	beast, abide?
	Why, then fly on, I'll hunt thee for thy hide.

	[Exeunt]
