Abstract

The meeting of Mark Antony and Cleopatra at Tarsus in 41 BCE is one of the fabled events of ancient history. The theatrics of this event, whether explored by Plutarch, Shakespeare or Mankiewicz's 1963 movie have taken on epic proportions: the dramatic concurrence of two larger than life characters. Beyond Antony and Cleopatra, though, there remains the possibility that there was a third significant contributor to the dynamics of this event. A man, whose role was more behind the scenes, but who nevertheless helped to orchestrate this celebrated occasion, Quintus Dellius.
