Mn. Acilius Balbus Moneyer of the Roman Republic from 125 BC to 125 BC.
Mn. Acilius Balbus was one of the moneyers for the year 125 BC. He was later consul in 114 BC.

The gens Acilia was a plebeian family at Ancient Rome, that flourished from the middle of the third century BC until at least the fifth century AD, a period of seven hundred years. The first of the gens to achieve prominence was Gaius Acilius Glabrio, who was quaestor in 203 and tribune of the plebs in 197 BC.

The Acilii Balbi were definitely plebeian. The surname Balbus was quite common in Rome, and originally given to one who stammered.
