A powerful Etruscan family in Arretium, driven out of their native town in B.C. 301, but restored by the Romans. The Cilnii were nobles or Lucumones in their State, and some of them in ancient times may have held even the kingly dignity. The name has been rendered chiefly memorable by C. Cilnius Maecenas. See Maecenas.
