AGRIPPA

                                                 Welcome, lady.

AGRIPPA

Welcome, lady.

MAECENAS

Welcome, dear madam.
95Each heart in Rome does love and pity you.
Only th’ adulterous Antony, most large
In his abominations, turns you off
And gives his potent regiment to a trull
That noises it against us.

MAECENAS

Welcome, dear madam. Every heart in Rome loves and pities you.
Only the adulterous and abominable Antony abandons you, giving his power to a whore who turns that power against us.

OCTAVIA

          (to CAESAR )            Is it so, sir?

OCTAVIA

(to CAESAR ) Is that true, sir?

CAESAR

100Most certain. Sister, welcome. Pray you
Be ever known to patience. My dear’st sister!

CAESAR

It’s undeniable. You are welcome here, sister. I beg you to continue to be patient. My dearest sister!
Exeunt
They exit.
