Act 5, scene 6
Troilus fights both Diomedes and Ajax. Hector bests Achilles but allows him to live, and pursues another Greek in order to take his splendid armor.Enter Ajax.
3428 Troilus, thou coward Troilus, show thy head!
⟨DIOMEDES⟩ 3429 Troilus, I say! Where’s Troilus?
AJAX 3430 What wouldst thou?
DIOMEDES 3431 I would correct him.
3432 5 Were I the General, thou shouldst have my office
3433 Ere that correction.—Troilus, I say! What, Troilus!
p. 253Enter Troilus.
3434 O traitor Diomed! Turn thy false face, thou traitor,
3435 And pay ⌜the⌝ life thou owest me for my horse!
DIOMEDES 3436 Ha! Art thou there?
3437 10 I’ll fight with him alone. Stand, Diomed.
3438 He is my prize. I will not look upon.
3439 Come, both you cogging Greeks. Have at you both!
⟨Troilus exits, ⌜fighting Diomedes and Ajax.⌝⟩
3440 Yea, Troilus? O, well fought, my youngest brother!
3441 Now do I see thee. Ha! Have at thee, Hector!
HECTOR 3442 15Pause if thou wilt.
3443 I do disdain thy courtesy, proud Trojan.
3444 Be happy that my arms are out of use.
3445 My rest and negligence befriends thee now,
3446 But thou anon shalt hear of me again;
3447 20 Till when, go seek thy fortune.He exits.
HECTOR 3448 Fare thee well.
3449 I would have been much more a fresher man
3450 Had I expected thee.
3451 How now, my brother?
3452 25 Ajax hath ta’en Aeneas. Shall it be?
3453 No, by the flame of yonder glorious heaven,
3454 He shall not carry him. I’ll be ta’en too
3455 Or bring him off. Fate, hear me what I say!
3456 I reck not though I end my life today.
Enter one in ⌜Greek⌝ armor.
3457 30 Stand, stand, thou Greek! Thou art a goodly mark.
3458 No? Wilt thou not? I like thy armor well.
3459 I’ll frush it and unlock the rivets all,
3460 But I’ll be master of it.⌜The Greek exits.⌝
3461 Wilt thou not, beast, abide?
3462 35 Why then, fly on. I’ll hunt thee for thy hide.
