This paper focuses on the oratorical practice of Mark Antony (the triumvir) from the Cicero’s point of view in the Philippics. The last series of deliberative orations of Cicero stigmatizes and detects Mark Antony’s incompetence and errors as orator and politician, but reveals too some indubitable skills of his eloquence (the eulogy at the funeral of Caesar). This paper examines not only the political speeches of Mark Antony mentioned in the Philippics (orationes and contiones), but also some texts, like letters and edicts, that demonstrate the distinctive ‘Asian’ style cultivated by Mark Antony.
