Cæsar with a senate at his heels.
Pope.—Essay on Man, Epi. IV. Line 258.

As for Cæsar,
Kneel down, kneel down, and wonder.

To grace in captive bonds his chariot wheels?
Shakespeare.—Julius Cæsar, Act I. Scene 1. (Marcellus to Citizens.)

Imperial Cæsar, dead, and turn’d to clay,
Might stop a hole to keep the wind away;
O, that that earth, which kept the world in awe,
Should patch a wall, to expel the winter’s flaw!
Shakespeare.—Hamlet, Act V. Scene 1. (To Horatio.)

How like a deer, stricken by many princes,
Dost thou here lie.
Shakespeare.—Julius Cæsar, Act III. Scene 1. (Mark Antony lamenting over Cæsar.)
