Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Recitativo
Tolomeo

Cornelia, è tempo omai
che tu doni pietade a un re che langue.


Cornelia

Speri invano mercede. Come obliar poss'io l'estinto mio consorte ?

Tolomeo

Altro ten'offre il regnator d'Egitto; Cara, al mio sen ti stringo...
(va per abbracciarla)

Cornelia

Scostati, indegno, e pensa che Cornelia è Romana.

Tolomeo

Non ho più da temer; Cesare estinto, Cleopatra umiliata, or non ascolto che il mio proprio volere.
(si vuol accostar di nuovo)

Cornelia

Se alcun non temi,
temi pur questo ferro,
che a me sola s'aspetta
far del morto consorte or la vendetta!
(estrae un pugnale)

English Libretto or Translation:

Recitative
Tolomeo
Cornelia, it is time omai
that you give pity to a lame king.

Cornelia

I hope in vain. How can I forget the extinct of my wife?

Tolomeo

Other ten'offre the ruler of Egypt; Dear, in my sen I hold you ...
(goes to hug her)

Cornelia

Shift, unworthy, and think that Cornelia is Roman.

Tolomeo

I have no more to fear; Caesar extinct, Cleopatra humiliated, or I do not listen that my own will.
(you want to accostar again)

Cornelia

If any do not fear,
themes even this iron,
that only awaits me
make of the dead consort or revenge! (draws a dagger)
