Back at her monument in Alexandria, Cleopatra and her attendants plan their immediate  future. She does  not  intend to be taken alive by Caesar, however seemingly kind his  intentions. Proculeius enters, and she remembers that Antony told her earlier that this  man could be trusted. He asks what she would request from Caesar, and Cleopatra  responds that she would like "conquered Egypt" for her son. Proculeius tells her not to  worry, but to submit herself to Caesar and that she will be taken care of. Suddenly,  however, soldiers enter and seize Cleopatra. She attempts to stab herself with a dagger  but is disarmed. She vows, however, that she will die, somehow, before she will permit  herself to be taken alive to Rome. She asks what Caesar plans to do with her and is told  that she will be led as a captive into Rome.
