Abib and Apollo were two Christian ascetics from Akhmim, Egypt. They are mentioned in the Synaxarion, das ist der Heiligen-Kalendar del Koptischen Christen. Their feast day is celebrated on November 4.
Apollo was born in the City of Akhmim. Abib and Apollo were close colleagues who entered a monastery in Upper Egypt together. Abib became a deacon and later died. Apollo, distressed, moved deeper into the desert, near Mount Abluj, followed by a group of ascetics. St. Macarius wrote a letter to St. Apollo to confirm him and the monastery in their good works.
