- Alexas did revolt, and went to Jewry on
- Affairs of Antony, there did dissuade
- Great Herod to incline himself to Caesar,
- And leave his master Antony; for this pains
- Caesar hath hang’d him. Canidius and the rest

Caesar’s First Soldier29 - 33
- Mock not, Enobarbus,
- I tell you true. Best you saf’d the bringer
- Out of the host; I must attend mine office,
- Or would have done’t myself. Your emperor
- Continues still a Jove.
Domitius Enobarbus34 - 43
- I am alone the villain of the earth,
- And feel I am so most. O Antony,
- Thou mine of bounty, how wouldst thou have paid
- My better service, when my turpitude
- Thou dost so crown with gold! This blows my heart.
- If swift thought break it not, a swifter mean
- Shall outstrike thought, but thought will do’t, I feel.
- I fight against thee? No, I will go seek
- Some ditch wherein to die; the foul’st best fits
- My latter part of life.
