Eth. Apolloniates, Apolloniates, Apollinas,-atis, Apolloniensis (Pollina), a town of Mygdonia in Macedonia, S. of the lake Bolbe (Athen. viii. p. 334, e.), and N. of the Chalcidian mountains, on the road from Thessalonica to Amphipolis, as we learn from the Acts of the Apostles (xvii. 1) and the Itineraries. (Anton. Itin. pp. 320, 330; Itin. Hierosol. p. 605; Tab. Peuting.) Pliny (iv. 10. s. 17. § 38) mentions this Apollonia.
