the second wife of Cato the Censor, was the daughter of a scribe, and client of the latter, and bore the vigorous old man a son whenis he had completed his eightieth year. This son, who was called M. Cato Salonianus, was the grandfather of Cato Uticensis. (Piut. Cat. Maj. 84; Gel. 13.19.) It is stated in Hieronymus (in Jovian. vol. iv. p. 190, ed. Paris) that the name of Cato's second wife was Actoria Paula, but the name is probably a mistake of the copyist for Aemilia Paula, who was the wife of the Censor's eldest son. (Drumann, Geschichte Roms, vol. v. p. 148, &c.).
