Alexas is one of Cleopatra’s attendants, the rather long-suffering butt of Charmian and Iras’s jokes.
He brings in the Soothsayer and appears to believe in him much more than the women do. He goes with Antony when he leaves Egypt, and return to report about the trip and Antony’s disposition to Cleopatra. He is later sent by Cleopatra to order the messenger to find out about Octavia. He is sent by Antony to visit King Herod, but rebels and persuades the latter to turn to Caesar. In thanks, Caesar hangs him.
