Dory'phorus

*Dorufo/ros), one of the most influential freedmen and favourites of the emperor Nero, who employed him as his secretary, and lavished enormous sums upon him. But in A. D. 63 Nero is said to have poisoned him, because he opposed his marriage with Poppaea. (Tac. Ann. 14.65; D. C. 61.5.)
