Mark Antony, friend of Caesar, used deceitful persuasion to win the sympathies of the people and leading them against the conspirators. The sincerity of Antony was unquestionable but he used the situation for his own good. His remarkable speech at Caesar’s funeral reached at the peak of emotions when he removed the cloak from Caesar’s body to show the people twenty seven holes by the daggers of the conspirators in the body of Caesar. Antony, through his vivid oratory persuaded people towards the direction of his own liking.
