Scene 4.1 - Antony's house in Rome
Antony, Octavius, and Lepidus - who come to be known as the second triumvirate of Rome - prepare a list of people they will execute. Some on the list are their own family members.
Antony tells Lepidus to fetch Caesar's will. Antony then remarks to Octavius that Lepidus does not deserve as much power as they do. Antony says that they will use him as a beast of burden that they will discard as soon as he serves his purpose. Antony then says that since Brutus and Cassius are gathering their armies, Octavius must form an alliance with Antony if they are to defeat them. Octavius agrees.
