PLUTARCH

On Pompey's death Cato maintained the struggle in Africa, with his head-quarters at the Carthaginian city of Utica. When Caesar finally defeated the senatorial forces at Thapsus, Cato devoted himself to securing a safe retreat for the Senators at Utica, whom the local Council of Three Hundred (composed of Roman traders and settlers) wished to surrender to Caesar, in order to appease him.

NEVER had the goodness of Cato been so apparent, never had the total absence from his actions of any false or unreal element excited such admiration and affection. He had long determined to take his own life, yet he was going to extreme pains of thought and effort for others, in order that he might secure everybody's safety before his death. He was clearly bent on this, though he did not admit it. After encouraging the local senate he complied with the request of the Roman Council, and came to them unattended. They expressed their gratitude to him and begged him to trust and make use of them for the future. They asked him to be indulgent with their weakness if they were not Catos, or capable of the spirit of a Cato. They had decided to send to Caesar and beg his pardon, and to make their first condition the pardon of Cato. If they failed to persuade Caesar they would not accept his clemency if it was offered to themselves, but would fight for Cato as long as they had breath in their bodies. Cato praised their friendly spirit and said that they should communicate with Caesar as quickly as possible in their own interests, but that they were to make no requests for him. Requests were for the defeated, apologies for offenders. He had not only been undefeated all his life, but he was victorious as far as he wished to be, and in honour and justice he was Caesar's master.

It became clear that if Cato wished to continue the struggle
against Caesar his side would not. Cato agreed that they should make the best terms possible for themselves, and
resolved to take the path out of a hopeless situation which in the last resort Stoicism sanctioned.
