Ceterum (autem) censeo Carthaginem esse delendam (“Furthermore, I consider that Carthage must be destroyed”), often abbreviated to Carthāgō dēlenda est (“Carthage must be destroyed”), is a Latin oratorical phrase pronounced by Cato the Censor, a politician of the Roman Republic. The phrase originates from debates held in the Roman Senate prior to the Third Punic War (149–146 BC) between Rome and Carthage. Cato is said to have used the phrase as the conclusion to all his speeches to push for the war.
