Antony and Cleopatra Characters

Ventidius is one of Antony’s generals. Antony sends him to make war on the Parthians, and he wins a great victory in which Pacorus, the son of Parthian king Orades, is killed.

When his follower Silius recommends that he continue fighting further and take over the entire Parthian empire, he refuses, citing the risk of Antony’s jealousy should he achieve such a great feat. He writes to Antony announcing his victory claiming that it was done in Antony’s name.
