Cn. Corn. Lent. Clodianus - Monetalis of Res Publica Romana from 88 BC to 88 BC
Cn. Cornelius Cn.f. Lentulus Clodianus was one of the moneyers for the year 88 BC. He later served as one of two Consuls of the Republic in 72 BC along with Lucius Gellius Publicola.

Closely linked to the family of Pompey, he is noted for being one of the consular generals who led Roman legions against the slave armies of Spartacus in the Third Servile War. He did not fare well, and was replaced as general by Marcus Licinius Crassus.

This setback to Clodianus’s career was only temporary; with the support of Pompey, both Clodianus and Publicola were appointed censor in 70 BC. They began a systematic purge of the senate, removing some sixty-four senators, although the majority of those expelled were acquitted by the courts and restored to their former position.
