On fair ground I could beat forty of them

Coriolanus
On fair ground
I could beat forty of them.
Menenius Agrippa
I could myself
Take up a brace o’ th’ best of them, yea, the two tribunes.
Cominius
But now ’tis odds beyond arithmetic,
And manhood is call’d foolery when it stands
Against a falling fabric.
