Ἀπολλώς has gen. Ἀπολλῶτος in an inscr. from the Serapeum at Memphis. See Preisigke 1917, who accents the nom. Ἀπολλῶς : since it is probably short for Ἀπολλώνιος (which occurs in Codex Bezae), this accords with analogy. The name can be quoted from Ostr 1319 (B.C. 7), 1577 (A.D. 132), Preisigke 1113 (A.D. 147–8), P Lond 929.44, .66 (ii/iii A.D.) (= III. p. 42 f.), ib. 1233.8 (A.D. 211) (= III. p. 58), where the editors would like to make Ἀπολλῶς gen., and P Goodsp 3.7, .11, .20 (A.D. 143) Ἀπολλῶτι. Without seeking for more exx., we may observe that Ἀπολλώνιος was an extraordinarily common name, no fewer than 39 persons bearing it in the inscrr. of Syll. (Naturally the abbreviated name does not figure in the more formal inscriptional style.) Ἀπολλόδωρος has over 50, and Ἀπολλωνίδης (-δας) half as many : Ἀπολλῶς might be a short form of these also. So apart from the very precise identification available we might not be sure that there was only one Apollos in NT.
