a)    By worth, action and utterance, Antony refers to qualities such as authority, gesture and eloquence needed to make a powerful speech.

b)    The speaker’s estimate of his skills is completely incorrect, as Antony does manage to agitate the crowd and turn them against the conspirators by exposing them. The quote is in fact a instance of irony because Antony’s powerful oratory manages to stir the blood of the Romans.
