Apollonia (South coast of Crete)
Apollonia (Greek: Ἀπολλωνία), also called Eleuthera (Greek: Ἐλεύθερα) was an ancient city of Crete, on the south coast, of uncertain location. William Smith states that the philosopher Diogenes Apolloniates was a native of the environs of Apollonia (the Apolloniates), although other scholars claim that the Apollonia in question was the Thracian one. The editors of the Barrington Atlas of the Greek and Roman World tentatively place Apollonia at Sellia.
