Domitia, Wife of Domitian, who Reigned 81 - 96 A.D.

Domitia Longina was the daughter of the famous general Cnaeus Domitius Corbulo and was taken from her husband and married to Domitian in 70 A.D. In 83 A.D. she was exiled for her affair with the actor Paris. Later Domitian seems to have forgiven her, as ancient sources indicate her as a part of the plot that ended the emperor's life. She died in the reign of Trajan or Antoninus Pius.

Apollonis, Lydia, was located south of Apollonia in Mysia, on the river Cissus, a tributary of the Hyllus, 56 km from Pergamum, and the same distance from Sardis. It was named after the queen Apollonis, the mother of Eumenes II and Attalus II of Pergamum. It was mentioned by Cicero. In 17 A.D., it was destroyed by the great earthquake that destroyed twelve cities of Asia Minor. Tiberius rebuilt the city. It issued coins from the time of Domitian to Severus Alexander. The site of Apollonis is located near Mecidiye, Turkey.
