  • Factious and rich, bold at the council board, But cautious in the field, he shunn’d the sword; A close caballer, and tongue-valiant lord.
  • While thus their factious minds with fury burn, The legates from th’ Aetolian prince return: Sad news they bring, that, after all the cost And care employ’d, their embassy is lost; That Diomedes refus’d his aid in war, Unmov’d with presents, and as deaf to pray’r.
  • A jarring murmur fill’d the factious court: As, when a torrent rolls with rapid force, And dashes o’er the stones that stop the course, The flood, constrain’d within a scanty space, Roars horrible along th’ uneasy race; White foam in gath’ring eddies floats around; The rocky shores rebellow to the sound.
