The Ancient City of Appolonia !

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.
