The gates of Corioli.
(Titus Lartius; Cominius; Caius Martius; Lieutenant to Lartius; Roman Soldiers; Scout)
Titus guards the gates of Corioli. (8 lines)
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.
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.
Fear not our care, sir.
Hence; and shut your gates upon ’s.
Our guider, come, to th’ Roman camp conduct us.
