Faustus Cornelius Sulla (grandson of Sulla)

Faustus Cornelius Sulla is the presumed name of a son of the Roman senator Faustus Cornelius Sulla and his wife Pompeia (and thus grandson of the dictator Lucius Cornelius Sulla and the triumvir Pompey the Great).

His existence can be inferred from a passage about the death of his father in 46 BC.[1] He is the presumed ancestor of several consuls in the first century AD, namely Faustus Cornelius Sulla Lucullus (consul suffectus in 31 AD), Lucius Cornelius Sulla Felix (consul 33), and Faustus Cornelius Sulla Felix (consul 52 AD).[2] About his life and career, nothing is known.
