Antoine Magnol (1676 – March 10, 1759) was a French physician and botanist born in Montpellier. He was the son of famed botanist Pierre Magnol (1638–1715), whom he replaced as chair at the University of Montpellier in 1715. Antoine Magnol held this position at Montpellier in an official capacity until his death in 1759.

He is largely known for his posthumous edition of his father's works, which included the 1720 publication of Novus caracter plantarum. Written works by Antoine Magnol include:

  • Dissertatio de naturali secretione bilis in jecore (Montpellier, 1719)
  • De natura et causis fluiditatis sanguinis naturalis et deperditæ (Montpellier, 1741)
