Cimone, very very rare, has a stock in Theatine in Abruzzo and one in Messina, Cimoni, equally rare it would seem typical of the Grosseto area, in some cases it could derive from the area of Mount Cimone in the Apennines between Modena and Tuscany, but the most likely thing is that they derive from the Latin name of Greek origin Cimon, of which we have an example in the writings of the Roman historian Cornelio Nepote: "... Cimon, Miltiadis filius, Atheniensis, hard admodum initio usus est adulescentiae. Nam cumpater eius litem aestimatam populo solvere non potuisset ob eamque causam in vinclis publicisdecessisset, Cimon eadem custody tenebatur neque legibus Atheniensium emitti poterat, nisipecuniam, qua pater multatus erat, solvisset ...
