In 75 B.C., the Roman senate sent the quaestor P.Lentulus Marcellinus to the new province of Cyrenaica.   In 67 B.C., Cn.Lentulus Marcellinus, who may have been his brother, visited Cyrene while acting as a legate of Pompeius in the war against the pirates; see T.C.Brennan, "The Praetorship in the Roman Republic", pp.408-409 ( Google Books ).


The Cyrenians honour Gnaeus Cornelius Lentulus Marcellinus, son of Publius, legatus propraetor, their patron and saviour.
