William Shakespeare: The History of Troilus and Cressida

SCENE 9. Another part of the plain

[Sound retreat. Shout. Enter AGAMEMNON, AJAX, MENELAUS, NESTOR,
DIOMEDES, and the rest, marching.]

Hark! hark! what shout is this?

Peace, drums!

[Within.] Achilles! Achilles! Hector's slain. Achilles!

The bruit is Hector's slain, and by Achilles.

If it be so, yet bragless let it be;
Great Hector was as good a man as he.

March patiently along. Let one be sent
To pray Achilles see us at our tent.
If in his death the gods have us befriended;
Great Troy is ours, and our sharp wars are ended.
