Minot’ti.
 
Governor of Corinth, then under the power of the doge. In 1715 the city was stormed by the Turks, and during the siege one of the magazines in the Turkish camp blew up, killing 600 men. Byron says it was minotti himself who fired the train, and leads us to infer that he was one of those who perished in the explosion. (Byron: Siege of Corinth.)   1
