Carthage Must Be Destroyed

Active selection:
Carthage Must Be Destroyed.  Again and again Marcus Porcius Cato reminded his Senate colleagues that Rome would never be safe while Carthage remained (see insert).  He always ended his speeches - whatever the subject - with the terrible words "Delenda est Carthago".  Renowned as an orator, the veteran senator's speeches made a deep impression on the Romans.  After two years of failure, Rome appointed Scipio Aemilianus to lead the assault on Carthage.  He succeeded with a ruthlessness which still shocks to this day.  Original artwork.
