3. Of ARTEMITA, whence he is distinguished from others of the name of Apollodorus by the ethnic adjectiveἈρτεμίτας or Ἀρτεμιτηνός. (Steph. Byz. s. v. Ἀρτεμίτα.) The time in which he lived is unknown.


On the Parthians

He wrote a work on the Parthians which is referred to by Strabo (ii. p.118, xi. pp. 509, 519, xv. p. 685), and by Athenaeus (xv. p. 682), who mentions the fourth book of his work. There are two passages in Strabo (xi. pp. 516 and 526), in which according to the common reading he speaks of an Apollodorus Adramyttenus; but as he is evidently speaking of the author of the Parthica, the word Ἀδραμυττηνὸς has justly been changed into Ἀρτεμιτηννός.

History of Cardia

Whether this Apollodorus of Artemita is the same as the one to whom a history of Caria is ascribed, cannot be decided. Stephanus Byzantius (s. vv. Ἀρκόνησος and Λαγινία) mentions the seventh and fourteenth books of this work.
