Great piece of history! The Roman senate had just voted that Marcus Antonius was a traitor and Octavian had declared war on Cleopatra. Unruly times. Here is Marcus Antonius' almost subdued answer. I got loyal legions. I got a great fleet. I got rich Cleopatra's support. What are you going to do about it? Little did he know that Caesar's son would destroy the fleet, corrupt the legions and hound him to death...
