“Ceterum autem censeo Carthaginem esse delendam”, says Cato the Elder, Roman statesman, finishing his speech; Furthermore, I think that Carthage must be destroyed.” However, that speech had not been about Carthage, a city lying opposite to Italy on the North African shore, at all. Yet Cato would always end his speeches with that quote, related or unrelated to Carthage. It was almost absurd.

How in the world did Carthage and Rome come to such hatred against each other?
