Sextus Afranius Burrus

Sextus Afranius Burrus was Nero's tutor and later advisor. For the first eight years of Nero's rule of the Roman Empire, he and Seneca the Younger helped maintain a stable government. He acquiesced to Nero's murder of Agrippina the younger, but he lost his influence over Nero anyway. Died in 62, some say of poison.
