The focus of this scene, set near Misenum, centers on the meeting of Caesar, Antony, Lepidus, and  Pompey; earlier, the triumvirs sent a letter to Pompey: in it, they said that they were prepared to allow  Pompey to rule Sicily and Sardinia if he would agree to "rid all the sea of pirates" and send an annual  tribute of wheat to Rome. Pompey is prepared to accept the offer, but he says that Mark Antony has  put him to "some impatience." Pompey reminds Antony of past debts; for example, Lucius, Antony's  brother, and Fulvia, Antony's late wife, joined with Caesar and attacked Pompey. Antony  acknowledges this fact. Antony and Pompey then exchange pleasantries about the good life in the  East, while Caesar remains silent; negotiations are concluded for the time being. Pompey then  invites them all to celebrate the treaty by dining aboard his galley.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
