Role SummaryNumerous messengers appear in Antony and Cleopatra: A messenger brings "News, my good lord, from Rome" in the opening scene. Antony refuses to hear him. Three messengers bring news to Antony of various military defeats, and of Fulvia's death. Two messengers bring news to Caesar of Pompey's (and his allies') naval preparations. One messenger is a mid-sized role: the unfortunate carrier of the message to Cleopatra that Antony has married Octavia, and who later reports (unflatteringly) on Octavia's looks and bearing. A messenger brings Antony news that Caesar has taken Toryne. A messenger summons Canidius to Antony. A messenger informs Caesar that Antony is come into the field.
