Two texts of the dioiketes Apollonius

Apollonius' dedication I.Portes 47 gives first place to Apollo Hylates; this cult is known only on Cyprus, which suggests that Apollonius was Cypriot. P.Hal. 1.260-265 grants a tax exemption to victors in certain festivals; the third festival listed is likely to be that at Hiera Nesos, and all three were royal, not civic festivals of Alexandria.
