Coriolanus Scenes


Scene 7

The gates of Corioli.

(Titus Lartius; Cominius; Caius Martius; Lieutenant to Lartius; Roman Soldiers; Scout)


Titus guards the gates of Corioli. ( line)

Titus Lartius, having set a guard upon Corioli, going with Drum and Trumpet toward Cominius and Caius Martius, enters with a Lieutenant, other Roman Soldiers, and a Scout.

LART.

So, let the ports be guarded; keep your duties,

As I have set them down. If I do send, dispatch

Those centuries to our aid; the rest will serve

For a short holding. If we lose the field,

We cannot keep the town.

LIEU. LART.

Fear not our care, sir.

LART.

Hence; and shut your gates upon ’s.

Our guider, come, to th’ Roman camp conduct us.

Exeunt.
