Philippan — “His sword,” ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA, ii. 5. 23. Cleopatra applies this epithet to Antony's sword in allusion to his valour at the battle of Philippi (Mr. Staunton's explanation—“the sword so named after the great battle of Philippi,” as if there was some particular sword so named—is hardly right).
