    The legions and the horse whole, do you not?

    CANIDIUS. Marcus Octavius, Marcus Justeius,
    Publicola, and Caelius, are for sea:

    Carries beyond belief.

  • Our fortune on the sea is out of breath,
    And sinks most lamentably. Had our general

    Most grossly, by his own!
  • DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS. Alack, alack!

    Most grossly, by his own!

    What further comes.

    My legions and my horse: six kings already
    Show me the way of yielding.
