Named for Aeneas’ {see planet  (1172)} herald and trumpeter. As Virgil tells it, Misenus unluckily blew on a conch shell just as the Trojan wanderers were making landfall in Italy, near Cumae, and the clear note of the shell so enraged the god Triton that he killed Misenus and threw his body on the beach. In later years a Roman fleet was stationed near the legendary place, at Misenum, named after Misenus. (M 18647) _ _.
