Troilus, thou coward Troilus, show thy head.

Enter DIOMEDES

DIOMEDES
Troilus, I say! Where's Troilus?

AJAX
What wouldst thou?

DIOMEDES
I would correct him.

AJAX
Were I the general, thou shouldst have my office
Ere that correction. Troilus, I say! What, Troilus!

Enter TROILUS

TROILUS
O traitor Diomed! Turn thy false face, thou traitor,
And pay thy life thou owest me for my horse.

DIOMEDES
Ha! art thou there?

AJAX
I'll fight with him alone. Stand, Diomed.

DIOMEDES
He is my prize. I will not look upon.

TROILUS
Come, both, you cogging Greeks; have at you

Exeunt fighting

Enter HECTOR

HECTOR
Yea, Troilus? O, well fought, my youngest brother!

Enter ACHILLES

ACHILLES
Now do I see thee, ha! Have at thee, Hector!

HECTOR
Pause, if thou wilt.

ACHILLES
I do disdain thy courtesy, proud Troyan.
Be happy that my arms are out of use;
My rest and negligence befriends thee now,
But thou anon shalt hear of me again;
Till when, go seek thy fortune.

Exit

HECTOR
Fare thee well.
I would have been much more a fresher man,
Had I expected thee.

Re-enter TROILUS

How now, my brother!

TROILUS
Ajax hath ta'en Aeneas. Shall it be?
No, by the flame of yonder glorious heaven,
He shall not carry him; I'll be ta'en too,
Or bring him off. Fate, hear me what I say:
I reck not though thou end my life to-day.

Exit

Enter one in armour

HECTOR
Stand, stand, thou Greek; thou art a goodly mark.
No? wilt thou not? I like thy armour well;
I'll frush it and unlock the rivets all
But I'll be master of it. Wilt thou not, beast, abide?
Why then, fly on; I'll hunt thee for thy hide.

Exeunt
