O'erflows the measure : those his goodly eyes,
That o'er the files and musters of the war
Have glow'd like plated Mars, now bend, now turn,
The office and devotion of their view
Upon a tawny front: his captain's heart,
Which in the scuffles of great fights hath burst
The buckles on his breast, reneges all temper;
And is become the bellows, and the fan,
To cool a gipsy's luft. Look, where they come:
Flourish. Enter ANTONY, CLEOPATRA, and

their Trains; Eunuchs fanning her.

The triple pillar of the world transform’d
Into a strumpet's fool: behold, and see.
