a Ligurian tribe, mentioned only by Pliny (3.5. s. 7
). They have been supposed to have occupied the Val di Mugello,
in the Apennines, N. of Florence;
but though it is certain that the Ligurians at one time extended as far to the E. as this, it is very improbable that Pliny should have included such a tribe in his description of Roman Liguria.
The name of the Mugello
is found in Procopius (B. G.
3.5) where he speaks of a place
) called Mucella (Μουκέλλα
), situated a day's journey to the N. of Florence.
