pure as was first thought.
The next person to be looked upon in Mark Antony, apparently Julius
Caesar's right-hand man. He plays the part of the hero as he takes Caesar's

that the third person of their new triumvirate, Lepidus, is not a worthy
adversary and is only good enough to carry messages. Antony goes on to say that
