Octavius agrees to the former demand, but otherwise is very displeased with what Antony has done. Enobarbus urges Antony to fight on land, where he has the advantage, instead of by sea, where the navy of Octavius is lighter, more mobile and better manned.
Antony refuses, since Octavius has dared him to fight at sea. However, during the Battle of Actium off the western coast of Greece, Cleopatra flees with her sixty ships, and Antony follows her, leaving his forces to ruin.
She locks herself in her monument, and awaits Antony's return.
Her plan fails: rather than rushing back in remorse to see the "dead" Cleopatra, Antony decides that his own life is no longer worth living.
They had three children together and there are letters that suggest she married him, although both were already married; she to a brother and he had a wife in Rome.
At Alexandria, Cleopatra begs Antony not to go, and though he repeatedly affirms his deep passionate love for her, he eventually leaves.He can retain Sicily and Sardinia, but he must help them "rid the sea of pirates" and send them tributes. They engage in a drunken celebration on Sextus' galley, though the austere Octavius leaves early and sober from the party.Menas suggests to Sextus that he kill the three triumvirs and make himself ruler of the Roman Republic, but he refuses, finding it dishonourable.Ashamed of what he has done for the love of Cleopatra, Antony reproaches her for making him a coward, but also sets this true and deep love above all else, saying "Give me a kiss; even this repays me." Octavius sends a messenger to ask Cleopatra to give up Antony and come over to his side.She hesitates, and flirts with the messenger, when Antony walks in and angrily denounces her behavior. Eventually, he forgives Cleopatra and pledges to fight another battle for her, this time on land.
On the eve of the battle, Antony's soldiers hear strange portents, which they interpret as the god Hercules abandoning his protection of Antony.
