Translation: Quintus Minucius
The gens Minucia was a Roman family, which flourished from the earliest days of the Republic until imperial times. The gens was apparently of patrician origin, but was better known by its plebeian branches. The first of the Minucii to hold the consulship was Marcus Minucius Augurinus in 497 BC. The nomen Minucius is frequently confounded with Minicius and Municius.
