Eros is Antony’s friend and attendant. He is the one who shares news about the Lepidus’ arrest to Mark Antony. Eros tells this information to Enobarbus as well. This attendant leads Cleopatra to his beloved Antony. He does this because of the belief that she will comfort him after the defeat at Actium. When Antony finds out about Cleopatra’s suicide, he commands Eros to kill him. However, the loyal attendant cannot do this, and he decides to kill himself instead of killing Antony. This act is brave and noble.
