Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the breakdown of the relationship between the two triumvirs, and the way Octavian/Augustus represented the approach to war against Antonius and Cleopatra. By 37/36 BC Antonius had resumed his affair with Cleopatra. This implied a threat to his relationship with Octavian. There has been much dispute too over the date to which the triumvirate had been extended at the renewal of 37 BC. The relative chronology for the year 32 BC was established by Kromayer many years ago. Octavian brilliantly countered the fact that Antonius could claim to fight for the res publica, both consuls being on his side, with the coniuratio Italiae.
