For whenever any one of these last came up and met them, he would fall upon them in anger, and shout aloud, and show the marks of his sufferings, reviling and pursuing, while the parent soul sought to flee and hide itself, but could not. And there were some, he said, to whom a number of their offspring were attached, clinging to them like bees or bats, and gibbering in wrathful recollection of what they had suffered on account of their parents. Up to this point, Thespesius had been, he said, a spectator. But as he was about to return, he suffered a horrible fear. For a woman of marvellous form and stature seized hold of him : ` Come here,' she said, ` that thou mayst have a better memory of these things.' Then she brought near him a rod, such as painters use, red-hot, but another woman prevented her. He, sucked up by a sudden violent wind, as out of a blowpipe, fell on to his own body, and just opened his eyes on the edge of the tomb.

I have given specimens of Plutarch's Lives in a companion volume.2 The following extract is from his biography of the younger Cato, one of the chief leaders of the senatorial party in the last century of the Republic. It is given here as a picture of the Stoic in life and death. Creeds are best judged from their disciples, and the story of Cato shows how Stoicism shaped the life and character of a rich, aristocratic politician.
When Cato received his share under his mother's will, amounting to about f30,000, he lived even more simply than before. He became a friend of Antipater of Tyre, a philosopher of the Stoic school, and adopted in particular their moral and political teaching.
