Apollonia (Pirgos Apollonias)


Apollonia (Pirgos Apollonias)

Apollonia (Greek: polytonic|Ἀπολλωνία) was an ancient town of Thrace on the cape Pirgos Apollonias on the mainland of Greece opposite the island of Thasos, described by the Epitomizer of Strabo (vii.) and by Pomponius Mela (ii. 2) being west of the Nestus, and erroneously by Livy (xxxviii. 41), as between Maroneia and Abdera, which is too far east.
