Ajax

5
  1.                                  What wouldst thou?

Diomedes

6
  1. I would correct him.

Ajax

7 - 8
  1. Were I the general, thou shouldst have my office
  2. Ere that correction. Troilus, I say, what, Troilus!
  1. Enter Troilus.

Troilus

10 - 11
  1. O traitor Diomed! Turn thy false face, thou traitor,
  2. And pay thy life thou owest me for my horse.

Diomedes

12
  1. Ha, art thou there?

Ajax

13

22
  1. Pause if thou wilt.

Achilles

23 - 27
  1. I do disdain thy courtesy, proud Troyan.
  2. Be happy that my arms are out of use;
  3. My rest and negligence befriends thee now,
  4. But thou anon shalt hear of me again;
  5. Till when, go seek thy fortune.
  1. Exit.

Troilus

33 - 37
  1. Ajax hath ta’en Aeneas! Shall it be?
  2. No, by the flame of yonder glorious heaven,
  3. He shall not carry him; I’ll be ta’en too,
  4. Or bring him off. Fate, hear me what I say!
  5. I reck not though I end my life today.
  1. Exit.
  1. Enter a Greek Knight in armor.

Hector

40 - 46
  1. Stand, stand, thou Greek, thou art a goodly mark.

  4. But I’ll be master of it.
  5. Exit Greek Knight.
  6.                           Wilt thou not, beast, abide?
  7. Why then fly on, I’ll hunt thee for thy hide.
