Apollonia in Illyria (modern Albania), known as Apollonia was founded in 588 BCE by Greek colonists from Kerkyra (Corfu) and Corinth, and was perhaps the most important of the several classical towns known as Apollonia (Απολλωνία).
The Bouleuterion (Monument of the Agonothets) is seen in the
background. This was the seat of the
Boulea (City Council).
