Apollonia. Libya. View from Apollonia of Hammam Island which was connected to the mainland before the devastating earthquake of 365 AD which submerged a large part of the harbour. Located approximately 20 kilometres from the magnificent Greek city of Cyrene, Apollonia was established on a broad bay in the late 7th early 6th century BC by the Greeks colonists of Cyrene to serve as its harbor / port. Named after the god Apollo, Apollonia remained Cyrene’s port for over one thousand years and its ruins provide insights into the great splendours of the Ancient Greek, Roman and Byzantine civilisations.
