Carthago delenda est Unisex Short Sleeve T-shirt

Availability: In stock

"Carthago delenda est," is a quotation coming from Cato the Elder. In English, it means "Carthage must be destroyed". After the 2nd Punic war, the opinions of Romans on the matter of Carthage varied. Some politicians advised to leave it be, while others demanded its total destruction. 

Cato was the leader of the second group. In every speech he had in that period, he finished with the same words "Carthage must be destroyed". 

In the end, another war with the Carthaginians broke out (the 3rd Punic war) and Rome came out victorious. They razed Carthage and reportedly even salted the soil in order to prevent a start of the new city on the location. Cato, however, didn't live long enough to see that.
