    • circa 1600: William Shakespeare, Timon of Athens, act III, scene V
      Demeas: Let it bee lawfull for mee (most honorable not onerable paire) awhile to reteyne & deteyne ligate & obligate your eares with my words neither aspersed or inspersed with the flore or rore of eloquence, yee are both like in nature, & in nurture alike in Genius & both alike ingenuous. What Timon refuses Callimela refuses, what Callimela wills Timon also wills, soe that Callimela may not bee but Timons Callimela, and Timon but Callimelas Timon.
