When Cassius asks Pindarus to report what he sees, Pindarus states that Titinius has been captured. Why is this event an example of irony?
At this point the audience knows that Titinius has not been captured.
Cassius says he cannot see well, but the strong-sighted Pindarus misinterprets what he sees.
Pindarus lies so that Cassius will kill himself and so leave Pindarus a free man.
Antony's troops are not capturing Titinius, but are cheering for him.
