Greek & Roman Geography (ed. William Smith)


  Apollonia (Apollonia: Eth. Apolloniates, Apolloniates, Apollinas, -atis, Apolloniensis). The name of two cities in Crete, one near Cnossus (Steph. B. s. v.), the inhabitants of which were most treacherously treated by the Cydoniatae, who were their friends and allies. (Polyb. xxvii. 16.) The site is on the coast near Armyro, or perhaps approaching towards Megalo Kastron, at the Ghiofero. (Pashley, Crete, vol. i. p. 261.) The site of the other city, which was once called Eleuthera (Eleuthera, Steph. B.), is uncertain. The philosopher Diogenes Apolloniates was a native of Apolloniates in Crete. (Diet. of Biog. s. v.)
