Of course any such speech delivered by Antony before the Roman throng would
have been in Latin rather than Greek; I have no idea what Latin verbs Dio
meant to represent by means of FILEIN and AGAPAN. Of course, Trench would
be basing his comments upon Dio's Greek sensibility, not on what Antony may
actually have spoken in Latin.
