Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Apollonia in Cyrenaica (modern Libya) was founded by Greek colonists and became a significant commercial centre in the southern Mediterranean. It served as the harbour of Cyrene, 20 km (12 mi) (12 miles) to the southwest. The Greek geographer and mathematician Eratosthenes was born there. Apollonia was one of the five towns of the Libyan Pentapolis. The ruins of Apollonia are sited by the modern town of Susah, Libya. The Apollonia (Susa) Museum houses many artifacts found on the ancient site, Appolonia appears to have been hit by the tsunami caused by the Crete earthquake of 21 July 365 AD.show more
