Excerpt

OLYMPIE.

Heureux commandement!

ALEXIS.

Allons, obeissons.

EUPHEMIEN.

Dans mon ravissement,
Je ne sçaurois, Seigneur, vous respondre autre chose,
Sinon que je connois le sang de Theodose,
Et qu'avecque son rang vous avez herité
De ce coeur si remply de generosité,
Qui pouvant par le fer dompter la terre et l'onde;
Par ses seules bontez s'acquerroit tout le monde.

HONORIUS.

Allez Euphemien, vous connoistrez encor
Que mon coeur vous cedent un si rare tresor,
Je n'ay pas fait pour vous tout ce que je medite:
Je veux joindre aujourd'huy la fortune au merite,
Et donner en faveur d'Olympie et de vous,
À mon heureux rival, un prix digne de nous.

SCENE II.

HONORIUS, SOSIMENE, ARISTANDRE.

SOSIMENE.

Certes une vertu si rare & si sublime
Montre combi
