coted “them on the way—We,” HAMLET, ii. 2. 315. To cote is explained by Tollet “to overtake,” and by Nares (in Gloss.) “to pass by, to pass the side of another.” Caldecott cites from Golding's transl. of Ovid's Metamorphoses, “With that Hippomenes coted her” B. x. sig. R 8 verso, ed. 1603. (where the original has “Præterit Hippomenes”), With the present passage of Shakespeare compare what the same speaker afterwards says of the same persons, “it so fell out, that certain players We o'er-raught on the way,” HAMLET, iii. 1. 16. (overtook, overpassed)
