Notes:
RE Minukianos(2); PIR2 J778; PLRE I Minucianus. But the biographical notice for the the third-century sophist M. Junius Minucianus (SEG 26.129; IG II2 3689-90) may have been conflated with the bibliography of the second-century rhetorician Minucianus, a rival of Hermogenes (RE Minukianos(1) = OCD4 Minucianus). See Heath (1996).
