1. M. Minucius Augurinus, consul B. C. 497, in which year the temple of Saturn was dedicated and the Saturnalia instituted. (Liv. 2.21; Dionys. A. R. 6.1.) He was consul again in 492, when there was a great famine at Rome. He took an active part in the defence of Coriolanus, who was brought to trial in this year, but was unable to obtain his acquittal. (Liv. 2.34; Dionys. A. R. 7.20, 27-32, 38, 60, 61.) In the victorious approach of Coriolanus to Rome at the head of the Volscian army, Augurinus was one of the embassy sent to intercede with him on behalf of the city. (Dionys. A. R. 8.22, 23.)
