Carthage Must Be Destroyed
|Caption||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.|
