The expulsion from Rome of the Sophists, by Cato the Elder (234–149 BC), born Marcus Porcius Cato and also known as Cato the Censor; Cato the Wise; and Cato the Ancient, a Roman soldier, senator and historian known for his conservatism and opposition to Hellenization. The Sophists were teachers who taught subjects such as music, athletics, and mathematics predominantly to young statesmen and nobility. During the Second Sophistic, the Greek discipline of rhetoric heavily influenced Roman education.
