Enter Lucius, Iachimo, and the Romane Army at one doore: and the Britaine Army at another: Leonatus Posthumus following like a poore Souldier. They march ouer, and goe out. Then enter againe in Skirmish Iachimo and Posthumus: he vanquisheth and disarmeth Iachimo, and then leaues him.

Iac. The heauinesse and guilt within my bosome,

2Takes off my manhood: I haue belyed a Lady,

3The Princesse of this Country; and the ayre on't

4Reuengingly enfeebles me, or could this Carle,

5A very drudge of Natures, haue subdu'de me

6In my profession? Knighthoods, and Honors borne

7As I weare mine) are titles but of scorne.

8If that thy Gentry (Britaine) go before

9This Lowt, as he exceeds our Lords, the oddes

10Is, that we scarse are men, and you are Goddes.
