. An imitator of Cato Uticensis, whose
character and conduct he copied so closely as to receive the nickname of “Cato's
ape.” He seems to have had some ability as an orator, but no specimens of his
speeches have descended to us. He was put to death by Octavianus after the battle of Philippi
in B.C. 42. See Val. Max. vi. 2.7; Cat. Min.
