Orfitus

1. Ser. Cornelius Orfitus, consul in A. D. 51, with the emperor Claudius (Tac. Ann. 12.41 ; Plin. Nat. 2.31; and the inscription in Fabrettus, p. 472). In A. D. 66 Orfitus proposed. in honour of the imperial family, that the month of June should for the future be called Germanicus (Tac. Ann. 16.12). It would appear, from an incidental notice in Tacitus (Tac. Hist. 4.42), that Orfitus perished not long after this, by an accusation of the informer Aquillius Regulus.
