M. Porcius Cato Moneyer of the Roman Republic from 89 BC to 89 BC.
M. Porcius Cato was one of the moneyers for the year 89 BC. He is not otherwise known.

Gens Porcia was a plebeian family at Ancient Rome. Its members first appear in history during the third century BC. The first of the gens to achieve the consulship was Marcus Porcius Cato in 195 BC, and from then until imperial times, the Porcii regularly occupied the highest offices of the Roman state.

The nomen Porcius is probably derived from 'porcus' meaning 'pig' The surname Cato is seemingly derived from 'catus' mneaning 'intelligent', and is said to have been bestowed upon Cato the Elder in consequence of his shrewdness
