Apollonia (Greek: Ἀπολλωνία) was a town of Mygdonia in Macedon, south of Lake Bolbe (Athen. viii. p. 334, e.), and north of the Chalcidian mountains, on the road from Thessalonica to Amphipolis, as we learn from the Acts of the Apostles (xvii. 1) and the Itineraries. (Antonine Itinerary pp. 320, 330; Itin. Hierosol. p. 605; Tabula Peutingeriana.) Pliny the Elder (iv. 10. s. 17. § 38) mentions this Apollonia.
