CONJUNCTIONS. As, meaning "namely"

As is frequently used (without such) to signify "namely:"

“And that which should accompany old age,
As honour, love, obedience, troops of friends.

“Tired with all these for restful death I cry,
As to behold desert a beggar born
And needy nothing trimm'd in jollity
And, &c.

So C. of E. i. 2. 98; Hen. VIII. iv. 1. 88; M. of V. iii. 2. 109.

“Two Cliffords, as the father and the son.

So A. Y. L. ii. 1. 6; Rich. II. ii. 1. 18; and Hamlet, i. 1. 117, where however a line has probably dropped out between 116 and 117.
