We’re getting close to the end now, I promise…
Fun fact! The son of Marcus Cato (ho!) is Marcus Porcius Cato, the brother of Brutus’s wife, Portia. Their father, Cato the Younger, killed himself after his attempts to prevent Julius Caesar’s rise to power failed. Portia, as you will remember, killed herself by swallowing hot coals. Young Marcus Porcius Cato here essentially committed suicide by charging the enemy without helmet or armor.
Don’t be like the Catos, kids.
