The Life of Marcus Antonius Antony and Cleopatra
[I]t happened that Fulvia as she was coming to meet her husband, fell sick by the way, and died at Sicyon, so that an accommodation was the more easily made.

Sicyon,
Where Fulvia Died

Second Messenger
Fulvia thy wife is dead.
MARK ANTONY
Where died she?
Second Messenger
In Sicyon:
Her length of sickness, with what else
more serious
Importeth thee to know, this bears.
