Both Brutus and Antony's speeches at the funeral of Caesar use rhetorical questions (questions used for effect). Antony lists JC's virtues, then says "Does this in Caesar seems ambitious?" The rhetorical intent is to lead the audience to believe not. In his speech, Brutus sees Antony and says he will have a place in the kingdom - "as which of you shall not?" The point being we all belong because all are equal in Rome.
