Mimantean (not comparable)
- (mythology) Of or relating to the giant Mimas in Greek mythology
- 1908, Jane Ellen Harrison, “Orphic Mysteries”, in Prolegomena to the study of Greek religion, page 514:
- Draughts from the fount of Nile [...] or the steep Mimantian height, Snow-capped
- (astronomy) Of or relating to the Saturnian moon named for Mimas
- 2008, Samantha Harvey (NASA/JPL), Solar System Exploration, page Saturn: Moons: Mimas:
- This is puzzling because Mimas is closer to Saturn than Enceladus, and the Mimantean orbit is much more eccentric (out of round) than the Enceladean orbit.
- 2011, Paul M. Schenk, “Geology of Mimas?”, in 42nd Lunar and Planetary Science Conference:
- a global thermal event early in Mimantian history erased all record of ancient impacts
Mimantean (plural Mimanteans)
- (fiction) An inhabitant of the Saturnian moon Mimas
- 2010 February 19, Hulles, “Mimas!”, in sardonic postmodern humor:
- I went back to the grind of reviewing that day's Cassini photographs. Imagine my shock when I noticed that Mimas, one of the inner moons of Saturn, had acquired a concave depression in it since the last fly-by! Of course, I immediately realized that the Mimanteans had constructed a fully armed and operational Death Star!
