Well, then, to return to Cato. Do you want me to tell you how he greeted the master of the gymnasium? Do not imagine that I [Note 1] am slandering your city; for the story is not my own. If any rumour has come round, even to your ears, of the man of Chaeronea, who belongs to that worthless class of men who are called by impostors philosophers, -- I myself never attained to that class though in my ignorance I claimed to be a member of it and to have a part in it, -- well he, as I was saying, related that Cato answered not with a word, but only cried aloud like a man stricken with madness and out of his senses, "Alas for this ill-fated city!" and took himself off.
