Little is known about Doryphorus other than the beautiful candalabrum found in Rome in 1803, in the Syrian Temple of Janicule. Vermasseren
If the inscription doesn’t tell us, Vermasseren does: "It is quite possible, that Doryphorus in the Syrian sanctuary dedicated this monument to Mithras. His name is also known from Ostia."
