Eth. MAGELLI 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 (χωρίον) called Mucella (Μουκέλλα), situated a day's journey to the N. of Florence.
