TITUS LARTIUS, having set a guard upon Corioli, going with drum and trumpet toward COMINIUS and CAIUS MARCIUS, enters with Lieutenant, other Soldiers, and a Scout
So, let the ports be guarded: keep your duties, As I have set them down. If I do send, dispatch Those centuries to our aid: the rest will serve For a short holding: if we lose the field, We cannot keep the town.
So, let the gates be guarded. Attend to the duties I've assigned to you. If I send word, send those soldiers [pointing] to help us. The rest will serve to hold the city while they are away. Anyway, if we lose the battle, we'll certainly lose the town.
Fear not our care, sir.
Don't worry about us, sir.
Hence, and shut your gates upon's.Our guider, come; to the Roman camp conduct us.
All right, lets go; shut the gates behind us. Come on, guide, take us to the other camp.
