Adler number: alpha,3416
Translated headword: Lake Apollonias
Vetting Status: high
Attalos, the king of Asia,[1] waged war against Nikomedes the One-toothed[2] and gained control of his territory. But Nikomedes called on the Romans and regained his kingdom. Attalos laid to rest his deceased mother Apollonias[3] alongside the greatest shrine in Pergamon, which he himself had built, and he named the neighboring lake after her.
Greek Original:
Ἀπολλωνιὰς λίμνη: ὅτι Ἄτταλος, ὁ τῆς Ἀσίας βασιλεὺς, Νικομήδει τῷ Μονόδοντι πολεμήσας ἐκράτησε τῆς αὐτοῦ χώρας. ἀλλ' ὁ μὲν Ῥωμαίους ἐπικαλεσάμενος ἀνέλαβε τὴν ἀρχήν. Ἄτταλος δὲ τὴν ἑαυτοῦ μητέρα Ἀπολλωνιάδα μεταλλάξασαν κατὰ τὸ μέγιστον ἱερὸν Περγάμου κατέθετο, ὅπερ αὐτὸς ἐδείματο, τήν τε γείτονα λίμνην αὐτῇ προσωνόμασεν.
Adler attributed this material to John of Antioch (Neos Hellenomnemon 1.13.2-7), noting also the suggestion of Johann Schweighaeuser (1742-1830) that its ultimate source is Polybius. See now John fr.145.1 Roberto.
