Apollinaris, bishop of Hierapolis in Phrygia (A. D. 170 and onwards), wrote an " Apology for the Christian faith" (λόγοι ὑπὲρ τῆς πίστεως ἀπολογίας
) to the emperor M. Antoninus.
He also wrote against the Jews and the Gentiles, and against the heresies of the Montanists and the Eneratites, and some other works, all of which are lost. (Euseb. Hist. Eccl. 4.27
