Mylae (mī´lē), ancient port, NE Sicily, now Milazzo. It was settled by colonists from Messina. Here in 260 BC the Romans in a newly built fleet were led to victory over the Carthaginians by the consul Caius Duilius in the First Punic War; it was Rome's first naval triumph. Mylae was (36 BC) the scene of a naval victory of Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa over Sextus Pompeius.
