Horatius

(Horatius Cocles) (hōrā`shəs, hə–), legendary Roman hero. With two companions he held Lars Porsena's Etruscan army at bay while the Romans cut down the Sublician Bridge (connecting Rome with the road westward) behind them. Horatius swam the Tiber River to safety and received as much land as he could plow around in a day. Horatius is the subject of the most popular poem in Macaulay's Lays of Ancient Rome (1842).

It is right and just that Addison's Cato should inspire such reverence in Macaulay, whose Lays of Ancient Rome honor Roman political virtue at its noblest peak, as in the poem eulogizing Horatius and his comrades at the bridge holding off the enemy onslaught: "Then none was for a party; / Then all were for the state; / Then the great man helped the poor, / And the poor man loved the great."
