Heraclea Minoa (Ancient Greek: Ἡράκλεια Μινῴα; Italian: Eraclea Minoa; Hêrakleia Minôia: Eth. Rhachlôtês, Heracliensis) was an ancient Greek city, situated on the southern coast of Sicily at the mouth of the river Halycus (modern Platani), 25 km west of Agrigentum (Acragas, modern Agrigento). Its ruins are now found near a modern town of the same name in the comune Montallegro in Italy. Archaeological finds suggest that it was founded in the middle of the 6th century BC, and was abandoned around the beginning of the 1st century AD.
