Mn. Aquillius Moneyer of the Roman Republic from 109 BC to 108 BC.
Manius Aquillius was one of the moneyers for the year 109-108 BC. He was a loyal supporter of Gaius Marius, and was trusted with command of an army against the Cimbri during the election for Marius' 4th consulship.

As a reward for his loyal services, Gaius Marius ran with Aquillius under a joint ticket for the consulship of 101 BC. After the consulship, with Rome struggling with famine caused by the slave revolt on Sicily, Aquillius was sent to put it down. Aquilius completely subdued Salvius and his insurgents and got an ovation in Rome in 100 BC.

In 90 BC he was sent to fight Mithradates VI, who defeated him in 88 BC. Aquillius was eventually executed by Mithradates by having molten gold poured down his throat.
