Xaire,
The lost city of Apollo, mentioned in the writings of Pytheas of Massilia (Marseilles) who lived during the time of Philip and Alexander, may have been found not far from Stonehenge.
Pytheas, who was probably of Phokian ancestry, visited Britain circa 325bce and described what is now thought to be a site known as Vespasian's Camp or Kings Barrow Ridge.

Thanks Cynisca for the news of the city of Apollo Very Happy . Very interesting, indeed!
I have heard about Pytheas the Greek from Marseille but I didn't know much about him. Now I'm going to find more about this man. "The Ocean" is his famous book, isn't it?

'Peritou Okeanou' which means 'On The Ocean'
I find it interesting that he was likely who named this island Britannia.
I now also wonder about our legend of Londonium originally being founded by Brutus, the great grandson of Aeneas of Troy and the visits that Greek traders were supposed to have made to Cornwall aka the 'tin isles'...!
