(Ἀπολλωνία)

A town of Mygdonia in Macedonia, S. of Lake Bolbe (Athen. viii. 334), and N. of the Chalcidian mountains. It lay on the Via Egnatia, and St. Paul ‘passed through’ Amphipolis and Apollonia on his way from Philippi to Thessalonica (Acts 17:1). The intermediate towns were probably remembered by him as resting-places. According to the Antonine Itinerary, Apollonia was 37 Roman miles from Amphipolis, and 37 from Thessalonica. Leake identifies it with the modern village of Pollina.
