|Timon of Athens|
|Act V. Scene III.|
The Woods. TIMONS Cave, and a rude Tomb seen.
Enter a Soldier, seeking TIMON.
| Sold. By all description this should be the place.|
|Whos here? speak, ho! No answer! What is this?|
|Timon is dead, who hath outstretchd his span:|| 5|
|Some beast reard this; here does not live a man.|
|Dead, sure; and this his grave. Whats on this tomb|
|I cannot read; the character Ill take with wax:|
|Our captain hath in every figure skill;|
|An agd interpreter, though young in days.|| 10|
|Before proud Athens hes set down by this,|
|Whose fall the mark of his ambition is. [Exit.|
