In ancient Greece, the laurel was sacred to Apollo and as such, sprigs of it were fashioned into a Laureate crown or wreath to honor poets and heroes.
Apollonia Pontica (or Apollonia Pontika) meaning, “Apollonia on the Black Sea”, became Sozopolis by the 1st century AD. Today it is the modern town of Sozopol located 35 km south of Burgas on the southern Black Sea Coast in Bulgaria.
