Antony and Cleopatra Characters

Seleucus is Cleopatra’s treasurer. When she gives Caesar a scroll apparently containing an inventory of all her wealth, she calls on him to witness that it is complete.

He claims that he is unwilling to lie and admits that the scroll does not mention about half her wealth, leading to Cleopatra’s having a fit of temper at him. It is possible that this is all a charade organized between Seleucus and Cleopatra, as the scroll is part of her plot to make Caesar believe she intends to live.
