Apollonius Molon (sometimes called simply Molon), Greek rhetorician, who flourished about 70 BC.

He was a native of Alabanda, a pupil of Menecles, and settled at Rhodes. He twice visited Rome as an ambassador from Rhodes, and Cicero and Caesar took lessons from him.

He endeavoured moderate the florid Asiatic style and cultivated an Atticized tendency. He wrote on Homer, and, according to Josephus, violently attacked the Jews.

See C Müller, Fragmenta Historicorum Graecorum, iii.; Emil Schürer, Story of the Jewish People, iii. (Eng. tr. 1886).
