Timon of Athens Scenes


Scene 3

The woods. A rude tomb near Timon’s cave.

(Soldier)


Alcibiades’s messenger finds Timon dead. (10 lines)

Enter a Soldier in the woods, seeking Timon. A rude tomb seen.

SOLD.

By all description this should be the place.

Who’s here? Speak ho! No answer? What is this?

Reads.

“Timon is dead, who hath outstretch’d his span:

Some beast read this; there does not live a man.”

Dead, sure, and this his grave. What’s on this tomb

I cannot read; the character I’ll take with wax;

Our captain hath in every figure skill,

An ag’d interpreter, though young in days.

Before proud Athens he’s set down by this,

Whose fall the mark of his ambition is.

Exit.
