MI´NIO (Mignone), a small river of Etruria, flowing into the Tyrrhenian sea, between Centumcellae (Civita Vecchia) and Graviscae, and about 3 miles S. of the mouth of the Marta. It is a trifling stream, though noticed by Virgil, as well as by Rutilius in his voyage along this coast; but Mela and the Geographer of Ravenna are the only geographical writers who deem it worthy of mention. (Verg. A. 10.183; Serv. ad loc.; Rutil. Itin. 1.279; Mel. 2.4.9; Geogr. Rav. 4.32.)
