Line 264-66). Pathos is shown as Antony provokes how important Caesar was to the Roman Empire and all he has done for his town, stirring the crowds’ perspectives through the sympathy he speaks across.

The people believed that Oedipus greatly impacted their lives for the better, and decided they would forever praise him for his great doings. Oedipus was determined to find the murderer, and to end the plague that was on his people.

In this scene Caesar has been murdered by the conspirators including Brutus. Brutus is one of Caesar's good friends who is driven by honor; who thought Caesar’s ambition was going to be the end of Rome. Antony is a very loyal friend of Caesar’s who does not agree with the conspirators. Brutus and Antony are both smart well thought out characters. They desire to persuade the commoners to their side of the situation.
Brutus continuously mentions that Caesar was ambitious. In his famous quote he says, “As Caesar loved me, I weep for him; as he was fortunate, I rejoice at it; as he was valiant, I honor him; but, as he was ambitious, I slew him.” Brutus uses the repetition of ambitious to emphasize the conspirator 's reason for murdering Caesar. By repeating the word “ambitious” he makes sure that the audience knew exactly why Caesar had to be killed. This helps to create the specific effect of justifying the conspirator 's actions because it gives the audience a solid reason for why Caesar was dangerous.

In Antony’s speech, a sentimental appeal is used in order to persuade the Romans by manipulating their emotions to feel pity for Caesar. Brutus, before he stabbed Caesar, was one of the latter’s closest friends, and Antony does not hesitate to mention this in his speech. He explains the intimacy between Brutus and Caesar, and how much the victim loved the convict. In order to really rub it in how Brutus betrayed Caesar, Antony describes, “This was the most unkindest cut
Augustus was a extremely well known figure in history and that is because he was known for the “[p]eace within the empire [that] was counted [as] the greatest blessing,” (192.) He was always concerned with the welfare of the people, the laws of Rome, and the fact that power should not be flaunted around.

For example in Julius Caesar, the people wanted Julius to become their king “Was the crown offered him thrice?” (Act 1 Scene 2 238) but he refused the crown three times. After the third time Julius noticed that the people were happy that he did not accept the crown, so he bent down and offered them his head.
