Publius Cornelius Dolabella was the son of Publius Cornelius Dolabella and Quinctilia, a sister of the Roman politician and general Publius Quinctilius Varus. He served as a Roman consul in AD 10.[1]

This Dolabella is famous for having reconstructed the Arch of Dolabella (perhaps formerly the Porta Caelimontana) in Rome in AD 10, together with his co-consul Gaius Junius Silanus. Later, Nero used it for his aqueduct to the Caelian Hill.[2]
