Thou didst drink the stale of horses and the gilded puddle.
So if I've got it straight - and I wouldn't swear to it - Antony is in Egypt kicking back and making nicey-nice with the ever so foxy Cleopatra while his wife is back in Rome. But there's some other stuff going on back there - rebellions and the like - and so Antony is called back. Oh yeah, and his wife kicks the bucket. Cleopatra decides she's not so keen on the idea of being parted from Antony and decides she wants to get really bombed so that she'll be out of it until he gets back.
