Cato the Elder

About

Marcus Porcius Cato (; 234–149 BC), also known as Cato the Elder (Latin: Cato Major), the Censor (Censorius), the Wise (Sapiens), and the Ancient (Priscus), was a Roman soldier, senator and historian known for his conservatism and opposition to Hellenization. He was the first to write history in Latin. His epithet "Elder" distinguishes him from his equally famous great-grandson Cato the Younger, who opposed Julius Caesar.
