      Cato the Elder (Latin: Cato Major; BC – BC), born Marcus Porcius Cato and also known as Cato the Censor (Cato Censorius), Cato the Wise (Cato Sapiens), and Cato the Ancient (Cato Priscus), was a Roman senator and historian known for his conservatism and opposition to Hellenization. He was the first to write history in Latin. Then Cato desired Cicero to command part of the army, but he declined, and announced that he would take no further share in the war. Thereupon some of the young warriors drew their swords, called him traitor, and would certainly have despatched him on the spot had it not been for Cato, who interposed and led him out of the camp.

      Coriolanus is a good example of his resourcefulness in trans- forming the lifeless dull story of the original into a higher artistic form. Shakespeare found the source of Coriolanus chiefly in Plutarch's Parallel Lives, in which the lives and careers of celebrated Greeks and Romans were described in pairs-e. g. Plutarch's Lives of Themistocles, Pericles, Aristides,Alcibiades, and Coriolanus, Demosthenes, and Cicero, Caesar and Antony/ in the translation called Dryden's Author Plutarch.

Alcibiades is an unusual individual and one would expect that Plutarch's account of him would deviate in its use of the Socratic paradigm from its appearance in other Lives.

Its application in the Lives of Cato the Elder and Cato the Younger, for example, has ideological overtones. In a way Aristides' just and moral behavior in the political. In private life Cato was a good father and husband, and although he held so important a position in the state, the care of his family was never neglected.

LIFE OF PLUTARCH. Plutarch was born probably between A.D. 45 and A.D. 50, at the little town of Chaeronea in Boeotia. His family appears to have been long established in this place, the scene of the final destruction of the liberties of Greece, when Philip defeated the Athenians and Boeotian forces there in B.C.
