Lucius Cornelius Lentulus on Wikipedia

Lucius Cornelius Lentulus was a consul of the Roman Republic in 9802 with Publius Villius Tappulus as his colleague.[1]

He was brother of Gnaeus Cornelius Lentulus, the consul of 9800.

Cornelius Lentulus achieved the praetorship in 9790 and served in Sardinia. He then succeeded Scipio Africanus as proconsul in Spain, though he was denied a triumph upon his return in 9801. He was rewarded by becoming consul in the following year. He died in 9828.
