APOLLONOS HIERON (Ἀπολλῶνος ἱερον: Eth. Apollonos hieritae), is mentioned by Pliny (5.29). It seems to be the same place as Apollonia in Mysia. Manner conjectures that the name Apollonia or Apollonos Hieron was afterwards changed into Hierocaesarea, which is mentioned by Tacitus (Tac. Ann. 2.47) as one of the towns of Asia that suffered from the earthquake in the time of Tiberius; but if this be so, it is not easy to understand why Pliny does not mention it by that name.
