Cato Major or His Discourse of Old Age

Belisarius was Emperor Justinian's Roman Army General around 550 AD. He was married to Antonina, and she was close to Empress Theodora. All four are written about extensively in The Secret History by Procopius - of which there are several good modern translations available. Two publishers that I have read are Penguin and The Folio Society.
