After conquering Egypt, Antony sends for Cleopatra, who has been told by an oracle that she will have great power over Antony. Antony travels to Alexandria to see Cleopatra again, and becomes obsessed with her. Octavius, Antony's Roman wife, threatens the vengeance of Rome against Antony after he spurns her in Egypt.

Octavius returns triumphant to Rome. Photographed in Rome and Egypt.
