ACT 4, SCENE 13: Alexandria. Cleopatra's palace.

[Enter CLEOPATRA, CHARMIAN, IRAS, and MARDIAN]

CLEOPATRA: Help me, my women! O, he is more mad
Than Telamon for his shield; the boar of Thessaly
Was never so emboss'd.

CHARMIAN:                To the monument!
There lock yourself, and send him word you are dead.
The soul and body rive not more in parting                                       [5]
Than greatness going off.

CLEOPATRA:                To the monument!
Mardian, go tell him I have slain myself;
Say, that the last I spoke was 'Antony,'
And word it, prithee, piteously: hence, Mardian,
And bring me how he takes my death. To the monument!            [10]

[Exeunt]
