        Roman Baths with Mediterranean sea, Apollonia, Susa, Libya | Ancient Civilizations

        Apollonia in Cyrenaica (modern Libya) was founded by Greek colonists and became a significant commercial centre in the southern Mediterranean. It served as the harbor of Cyrene, 20 km to the southwest. The city is the birthplace of the Greek geographer and mathematician Eratosthenes. Apollonia became autonomous from Cyrene at latest by the time the area came within the power of Rome, when it was one of the five cities of the Libyan Pentapolis, growing in power until, in the 6th century A.D., it became the capital of the Roman province of Libya Superior or Libya Pentapolitana.
