Apollonia (Ancient Greek: Ἀπολλωνία) was a town of ancient Mysia, Anatolia, situated on an eminence east of Pergamum, on the way to Sardis.[1] It seems to have been near the borders of Mysia and Lydia.

The site of Apollonia is located between the modern Turkish towns of Hamidiye and Dualar.[2][3] The larger town of Soma is just to the East.
