Menas (a pyrate!)

Men. You, and I have knowne sir.
Enob. At Sea, I thinke.
Men. We have Sir.
Enob. You have done well by water.
Men. And you by Land.
Enob. I will praise any man that will praise me, though it cannot be denied what I have done by Land.
Men. Nor what I have done by water.
Enob. Yes something you can deny for your owne safety: you have bin a great Theefe by Sea.
Men. And you by Land.
Enob. There I deny my Land service: but give mee your hand Menas, if our eyes had authority, heere they might take two Theeves kissing. [DK NOTE: Which they do now] Men. All mens faces are true, whatsomere their hands are.

It is Menas who suggests to Pompey that Pompey kill all the guests aboard Pompey’s galley. And I think it is Menas who might beat the drum when the men “daunce now the Egyptian Backenals.” He first appears in the scene with Pompey and Menecrates. Menecrates (played by the actor who doubles as  unheeded messengers) councils patience to Pompey. Pompey addresses his comments to the silent Menas, rather than accepting or acknowledging Menecrates as the source of advice).
