INSPIRATION Plutarch- Life of Marc Antony, "They say, that same night the city of Alexandria was quiet and oppressed with fear, in anticipation of the morrow. Suddenly around midnight, people heard some kind of music from many instruments and the loud orgiastic cries of revelers and leaping satyrs, like the noises of a departing throng. It seemed to rage through the center of town, up to the gate facing the enemy and there the uproar grew loudest, and then vanished. To the interpreters, this seemed a sign that Antony had been abandoned by Dionysius, the god whom he most resembled and clung to." Also Cavafy & L. Cohen.
