37. CN. CORNELIUS CN. F. LENTULUS AUGUR, consul B. C. 14, with M. Licinius Crassus. He was a man of immense weath, but of a mean and pusillanimous spirit. His wealth excited the avarice of Tiberius, who caused him so much fear that at length he put an end to his life, leaving his fortune to the emperor (D. C. 54.12; Senec. de Benef. 2.27; Suet. Tib. 49). This Cn. Lentulus, who is always spoken of as Augur, must not be confounded with Cn. Lentulus Gaetulicus [No. 39]. (See Lipsius, ad Tac. Ann. 4.44.) The Augur Lentulus spoken of by Tacitus (Tac. Ann. 3.59) in A. D. 22, must, therefore, be the same as the preceding.
