	[Alarum. Drums and trumpets. Enter AGRIPPA
	and others]

AGRIPPA: Retire, we have engaged ourselves too far:
	Caesar himself has work, and our oppression
	Exceeds what we expected.


	[Alarums. Enter MARK ANTONY and SCARUS wounded]

SCARUS: O my brave emperor, this is fought indeed!
	Had we done so at first, we had droven them home
	With clouts about their heads.

MARK ANTONY: Thou bleed'st apace.

SCARUS: I had a wound here that was like a T,
	But now 'tis made an H.

MARK ANTONY: They do retire.

SCARUS: We'll beat 'em into bench-holes: I have yet
	Room for six scotches more.

	[Enter EROS]

EROS: They are beaten, sir, and our advantage serves
	For a fair victory.

SCARUS: Let us score their backs,
	And snatch 'em up, as we take hares, behind:
	'Tis sport to maul a runner.

MARK ANTONY: I will reward thee
	Once for thy spritely comfort, and ten-fold
	For thy good valour. Come thee on.

SCARUS: I'll halt after.
