Mug-si was ruler of Adab, circa 2500 BCE.

Mug-si (Sumerian: 𒈮𒋛, mug-si) was a Sumerian ruler (ensi) of the Mesopotamian city of Adab in the mid-3rd millennium BCE, probably circa 2400 BCE.[1][2] He was the predecessor of E-iginimpa'e.[3][4]

His title was ensi-gar, or "Supreme Governor", the highest civil office in Adab.[5][3]

Mug-si is only known from inscriptions, especially a land sale document where he appears with his title.[3]
