The fact that Antony chose for his sphere of influence the eastern provincess in a clear indication that Octavian was still in the background; for those rich lands constituted the main part of the Roman dominions. With a large army Antony passed on his triumphal way through Greece, and thence to Asia Minor; and at length, in the late summer of B.C. 41, he made his temporary headquarters at Tarsus. 41.
