The Comedy of Errors Characters

Duke (Solinus) of Ephesus rules his town with great respect for law, insisting that he cannot go against the set rules even if he wishes to, though he is willing to bend them a little on occasion. 

He rigidly enforces the law that requires a thousand marks from every Syracusian merchant found within the boundaries of Ephesus. He has been patron to Antipholus of Syracuse for twenty years, ever since he was brought to town by the Duke’s uncle Menaphon of Corinth and fought in the Duke’s wars, and arranged for his marriage to the rich lady Adriana. The Duke is able to pity, is intelligent enough to be the first to link Egeon’s tale to the mysterious happenings of the day, and willing to break his oath about being unable to undo the law when he so chooses.
