Publius Cornelius Sulla (died 45 BC) was a politician of the late Roman Republic. He was a relative of Lucius Cornelius Sulla Felix. He was elected consul in 66 BC (to assume office in 65 BC) together with Publius Autronius, 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 Marcus Tullius Cicero and Quintus Hortensius leading his defence. He is remembered most notably for having commanded the right wing of Julius Caesar's army at the battle of Pharsalus.
