Antony and Cleopatra Characters

An ambassador from Antony to Caesar is in fact Antony’s Schoolmaster. His being sent either means that Antony is done for, and has few followers left, as Dolabella states, or is a calculated insult to Caesar.

He presents two separate embassies, one from Antony asking to be allowed either to live in Egypt or Athens, and another from Cleopatra requesting she may remain queen and bequeath this to her heirs. When he returns to Antony with the news that Caesar has no intention of letting him survive, he sends him back again with orders to call Caesar a coward and dare him to personal combat.
