Plant those that have revolted in the vant,
That Antony may seem to spend his fury
Upon himself.

Exeunt all but ENOBARBUS
Everyone exits except ENOBARBUS.

ENOBARBUS
Alexas did revolt and went to Jewry on
Affairs of Antony, there did dissuade
Great Herod to incline himself to Caesar
And leave his master Antony. For this pains
Caesar hath hanged him. Canidius and the rest
That fell away have entertainment but
No honorable trust. I have done ill,
Of which I do accuse myself so sorely
That I will joy no more.
ENOBARBUS
Alexas deserted. He went to Judea as if on Antony’s business, but he persuaded Herod to support Caesar instead. Caesar hanged him for this service. Canidius and the others that left Antony are given hospitality here but no positions of trust. I’ve done a bad thing, for which I will blame myself so much that I’ll never be happy again.
