P. Corn. Lent. Marcellinus I Moneyer of the Roman Republic from 100 BC to 100 BC.
Publius Cornelius Lentulus Marcellinus was one of the moneyers for the year 100 BC. His namesake was moneyer in 50 BC.

The gens Cornelia was one of the greatest patrician houses at Rome. For more than seven hundred years, from the early decades of the Republic to the third century AD, the Cornelii produced more eminent statesmen and generals than any other gens. Nearly a third of all the consuls under the Republic were members of this family, beginning with Servius Cornelius Cossus Maluginensis in 485 BC.

The cognoment 'Lentulus' was associated with Gens Cornelia, and literally means 'slow'.
