Callipolis is the Latinized form of Kallipolis (Καλλίπολις), which is Greek for "beautiful city", from κάλλος kallos (beauty) and πόλις polis (city). It was the name of several ancient cities, notably:

  • Kallipolis, the name Socrates uses for his utopia in Plato's dialogue The Republic
  • Some historians believe that there was an ancient Greek colony, named Kallipolis, at the place of modern Barcelona, Spain; see History of Barcelona
