Publius Cornelius Sulla
Publius Cornelius Sulla (d. 45 BC) was a politician of the late Roman Republic. He was the nephew (there is dispute over the degree of relatedness) of Lucius Cornelius Sulla the Dictator. He was elected consul in 66 BC (to assume office in 65 BC) together with Publius Autronius Paetus , but both were discovered to have committed bribery and were disqualified from the office. He was soon after implicated in the Catiline conspiracy, but was not convicted, having Cicero and Hortensius leading his defence. He is remembered most notably for having commanded the right wing of Caesar's army at the battle of Pharsalus.
