Lords, Ladies, Knights, Gentlemen, Sailors, Pirates, Fishermen
and Messengers, &c.
SCENE, dispersedly in various Countries.
Before the Palace of Antioch.
To sing a song that old was sung,
To glad your ear, and please your eyes.
On ember-eves, and holy ales,
And lords and ladies in their lives
The purpose is to make men glorious;
This Antioch, then: Antiochus the great
I tell you what my authors say:
Bad child, worse father, to entice his own
As yond' grim looks do testify.
What now ensues, to the judgment of your eye
I give, my cause who best can justify.
