killed. suicide.

Cleopatra places the poisonous asp at her breast and allows herself to be bitten.

"[To an asp, which she applies to her breast]

With thy sharp teeth this knot intrinsicate

Of life at once untie: poor venomous fool 355

Be angry, and dispatch. O, couldst thou speak,

That I might hear thee call great Caesar ass
