Apollonia Salbaces or Apollonia Salbakes (Ancient Greek: Ἀπολλωνία Σαλβάκη) was a town in ancient Caria, Anatolia.

It became the seat of a bishop, and under the name Apollonia Salbace it remains a titular see of the Roman Catholic Church.[1]

The site of Apollonia Salbaces is near the modern Medet.[2][3]
