Antony and Cleopatra: Act 4, Scene 7 Summary & Analysis

Read our modern English translation of this scene.
On the field of battle, Agrippa calls for his forces to retreat, and Antony enters with his soldier Scarus, who is wounded. Eros enters and happily tells them that they have gained a victory. Antony tells Scarus he will reward him for his bravery and loyalty.
After his army's unlikely victory, Antony promises to reward Scarus, because he—unlike Enobarbus—remained loyal to him even in a dire situation.
