2. Of Laodiceia, in Syria, was a disciple of Syrianus, and a fellow-pupil of Proclus the Lycian, and must, therefore, have flourished about the middle of the fifth century after Christ. He appears to have been peculiarly bigoted to his own opinions, and is said to have corrupted the doctrines of Plato by mixing up with them his private notions. This called forth a treatise from Proclus, intended as a statement of the genuine principles of Platonism (Πραγματεία καθαπτικὴ τῶν δογμάτων τοῦ Πλάτωνος), a work which Fabricius, apparently by an oversight, ascribes to Domninus himself. (Bibl. Graec. vol. iii. p. 171; Damasc. apud Said. s. v. Δομνῖνος.)
