The Gates of Corioli.
Titus Lartius,having set a guard uponCorioli,going with drum and trumpet towardsCominiusandCaius Marcius,enters with a Lieutenant, a party of 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.
Fear not our care, sir.
Hence, and shut your gates upon us.
Our guider, come; to the Roman camp conduct us.
