Lucius Minucius Esquilinus Augurinus, son of Publius, was consul of the Roman Republic with Gaius Nautius Rutilus in 458 BC.[1]

Minucius was ordered to bring his army against the Aequi camped near Tusculum. However, he camped his army next to the enemy, and did not take the initiative. The Aequi surrounded the Roman camp, and only the arrival of another Roman army, led by dictator Cincinnatus, turned the Battle of Mons Algidus from a defeat into victory.
