L. Cornelius Lentulus - Praetor of Res Publica Romana from 211 BC to 211 BC
Lucius Cornelius Lentulus struck coins in 211 BC, where he also served as Praetor of Sicily.

He was brother of Gnaeus Cornelius Lentulus, the consul of 201 BC. After serving as Praetor, he succeeded Scipio Africanus as proconsul in Spain, though he was denied a triumph upon his return in 200 BC. He was rewarded by becoming consul in the following year. He died in 173 BC.

He is particularly interesting, because he was (as far as we know) the first moneyer to sign his coins - in his case with a simple capital C.
