Plutarch and Shakespeare Compared

The Life of Marcus Antonius Antony and Cleopatra
Antony, on the other side, with the like bold language, challenged him [Caesar] to a single combat, though he were much the older; and, that being refused, proposed to meet him in the Pharsalian fields, where Caesar and Pompey had fought before. DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS
So hath my lord dared him to single fight.
CANIDIUS
Ay, and to wage this battle at Pharsalia.
Where Caesar fought with Pompey: but these offers,
Which serve not for his vantage, be shakes off;
And so should you.

III.vii.30-34
