Apollonius of Aphrodisias

Apollonius of Aphrodisias (Ancient Greek: Απολλώνιος ὁ Ἀφροδισιεύς) in Cilicia is described in the Suda as a high priest and a historian.[1] He is said to have written a work on the town of Tralles, a second on the mythological figure Orpheus and his mysteries, and a third on the history of Caria (Καρικά), of which the eighteenth book is mentioned, and which is often referred to by Stephanus of Byzantium.[2][3]
