was originally, in some of its branches at least, patrician [AUGURINUS]; but more frequently occurs in history as a plebeian house. Its principal cognomens were AUGURINUS, BASILUS, RUFUS, and THERMUS. Minicius and Municius are frequently confounded with Minicius.
The following coin of the Minucia gens bears on the obverse the head of Pallas, and on the reverse Jupiter in a chariot hurling a thunder-bolt, with the legend L. Minusius. Who this L. Minucius was is unknown.
