o'ercount “me of my father's house—Thou dost,” ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA, ii. 6. 27 ; “O Antony, You have my father's house,” ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA, ii. 7. 126. “O'er-count seems to be used equivocally, and Pompey perhaps meant to insinuate that Antony not only out-numbered, but had over-reached him. The circumstance here alluded to our author found in the old translation of Plutarch [by North]: ‘Afterwards, when Pompey's house was put to open sale, Antonius bought it; but when they asked him money for it, he made it very straunge, and was offended with them’” (MALONE) .
