<p> 
   To my Worthy and much Respected 
   Friend, <hi rend="italic">Mr. Thomas Hammon</hi>, 
   of Grayes Inne Esquire. 
   
   Sir,
   IF the noble Scholler <hi rend="italic">Nichod. Friseelimus</hi>,
   thought that his labour in Transferring 
   six of <hi rend="italic">Aristophanes</hi> his Comedies, out of 
   the Originall <hi rend="italic">Greeke</hi> into the <hi rend="italic">Roman</hi> 
   tongue, was worthy to be dedicated to six seueral,
   the most eminent Princes of his time, for Learning
   and Iudgement: Thinke it then no disparagment
   to you, to vndertake as well the <hi rend="italic">Patronage</hi>,
   perusall of this Poem: Which as it exceedes the
   strict limits of the ancient Comedy (then in vse)
   informe, so it transcends them many degrees; 
   both in the fulnesse of the Sceane, and grauity of
   the Subject.
   
   The History whereon it is grounded, hauing
   beene the selected Argument of many exquisite 
   Poets: For what the Pen of note, in one page or other
   hath not remembered <hi rend="italic">Troy</hi>, and bewayl'd the 
  sacke, and subuersion of so illustrious a Citty: 
   Which, although it were scituate in <hi rend="italic">Asia</hi>, yet out 
   of her ashes hath risen, two of the rarest Phœnixes 
   in <hi rend="italic">Europe</hi>, namely <hi rend="italic">London</hi> and <hi rend="italic">Rome</hi>. <hi rend="italic">Sir</hi> my 
   acquaintance with your worth, and knowledge of 
   your iudgement, were the chiefe motiues, inducing
   me to select you before many others: accept
   it, I intreate you, as fauourably as hee exposeth it 
   willingly, who as he hath antecedently long, so 
   futurely euer,
   
   Shall remayne yours:
   <hi rend="italic">Thomas Heywood</hi>.
   
  To the Reader.
   <hi rend="italic"> Courteous Reader: The Gold, Siluer,
  and Brasse Ages hauing beene many 
  yeares since in the Presse, continuing 
  the History from Iupiters Birth (the
  sonne of Saturne) to the Death of 
  Hercules. This Iron Age (neuer till now Published,)
  beginneth where the other left, holding on, a plaine 
  and direct course, from the second Rape of Hellen: 
  (For she was in her minority rauished by Theseus the
  Friend of Hercules) not onely to the vtter ruine, and 
  deuastation of Troy; but it, with the second Part, 
  stretcheth to the Deathes of Hellen, and all those 
  Kings of Greece, who were the vndertakers of that
  Ten yeares Bloody and fatall Seige. I presume the
  reading there of shall not proue distastfull vnto any:
  First inregard of the Antiquity and Noblenesse of the
  History: Next because it includeth the most things of
  especiall remarke, which haue beene ingeniously Commented,
  and labouriously Recorded, by the Muses 
  Darlings, the Poets: And Times learned Remembrancers; 
  the Histriographers.
  
  Lastly, I desire thee to take notice, that these were
  the Playes often (and not with the least applause,) 
  Publickely Acted by two Companies, vppon one Stage 
  at once, and haue at sundry times thronged three seuerall
  Theaters, with numerous and mighty Auditories, 
  if the grace they had then in the Actings, take not away
  the expected luster, hoped for in the Reading, I shall
  then bold thee well pleased, and therein, my selfe fully 
  satisfied; Euer remaining thine as studious.</hi>
   
  Prodesse vt Delectare: 
  
  Thomas Heywood.
