What does Antony mean when he tells the conspirators, "My credit now stands on slippery ground"? (3.1.204)

A

Antony is admitting that his reputation is something that always preceded him positively; however, now that Caesar is dead, he is worried that no one is going to see him in the same light that Caesar did.

B

Antony is concerned that the citizens of Rome will not want him as their ruler because Caesar is not there to boost him up.

C

Antony realizes that the citizens of Rome may think he was part of the conspiracy if he continues to act in a friendly manner with Brutus and Cassius.

D

Antony is most fearful of how the conspirators will perceive him if he treats them with flattery and respect; they may question his hidden agenda.
