I think it best translates as "Nero, having been frightened by these words"

Cheers!

Also: iuvenis tamen, consumpto veneno, non mortuus est.

"However the young man, with the poison having been consumed, he was not dead."

Just another one (SORRY!) ubi poculum vini nimis calidi, in quod nullum venenum positum erat, ei datum est,
When a cup of wine was too hot, in which no wine having been placed, was given to him

the first one is correct, if the text says his verbis territus.

regarding the second one, non mortuus est means "did not die" or "is not dead" - it cannot mean "was not dead" (mortuus erat/fuit)

the third one... it's just "a cup of wine too hot", no "is". then you translated venenum as vinum. positum erat is pluperfect, so "had been ___ed" (not "having been ___ed").
