Antonio Mancinelli (6 December 1452 – 1505) was a humanist pedagogue, grammarian, and rhetorician from Velletri who taught in Venice, Rome, and Orvieto. He produced editions of Cicero, Herodotus, Horace, Juvenal, Suetonius, Virgil, and many other authors. His Carmen de Figuris rendered parts of Quintilian's rhetoric in hexameter.[1]

By 1473, he had opened a humanistic school in Velletri.[2] He died in Rome.
