Apollonia (Mysia)

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 Yenice and Duvarlar.[2][3]

List of ancient Greek cities

This is a small list of ancient Greek cities, including colonies outside Greece proper. Note that there were a great many Greek cities in the ancient world. In this list, a city is defined as a single population center. These were often referred to as poleis in the ancient world, although the list is not limited to "proper" poleis. Also excluded from the list are larger units, such as kingdoms or empires.

A city is defined as ancient Greek if at any time its population or the dominant stratum within it spoke Greek. Many were soon assimilated to some other language. By analogy some cities are included that never spoke Greek and were not Hellenic per se but contributed to Hellenic culture later found in the region.
