Root (v.)

Timon of Athens, [5.1.158-165]. First senator. “Therefore, so please thee to return with us/ And of our Athens, thine and ours, to take/ The captainship, thou shalt be met with thanks,/ Allow’d with absolute power, and thy good name/ Live with authority; so soon we shall drive back/ Of Alcibiades th’ approaches wild,/ Who, like a boar too savage, doth root up/ His country’s peace.”
