Saoterus

of Nicomedeia, chamberlain to Commodus, and at one time so great a favourite, that he entered Rome sharing the triumphal chariot with the emperor. He was eventually put to death through the machinations of Cleander [CLEANDER] (D. C. 72.12; Lamprid. Commod. 3, where the name Auterus is probably, as Salmasius has pointed out, a corruption of Saoterus.)
