Cressida “was a beggar,” TWELFTH NIGHT, iii. 1. 53. “The circumstance of making Cressid a beggar is from Chaucer [Henryson]; who, in his Testament of Creseyde, makes Saturn, at the instance of Cupid, conclude a sentence pronounc'd on her in these words,
‘great penurye
Thou suffre shalt, and as a beggar dye’”
