Teos [İzmir-Seferihisar-Sığacık], It was the birthplace of Anacreon the poet, Hecateus the historian, Protagoras the sophist, Scythinus the poet, Andron the geographer, and Apellicon the preserver of the works of Aristotle.

He purchased [and sometimes stole] a wide variety of books, including the libraries of Aristotle and Theophrastus from Neleus of Scepsis.

He was appointed a military commander by the pro-Mithradates VI government of Athens, but he was significantly incompetent and only managed to escape with his life. His library was seized by Sulla [Lucius Cornelius Sulla Felix] and sent to Rome in 84 BC.

In the years 89 / 88 BC, Apellikon initially worked officially as a mint master in Teos, but quickly developed a great interest in reading and collecting manuscripts and books. His collection of authentic writings also included manuscripts by Aristotle, which is why the collection was treasured by scholars and scientists of the time.

It is said that Apellikon was able to greatly expand the scope of his library when he was able to add further manuscripts and books to his collection from the descendants of Neleus, a nephew of Theocrates, which had previously been stored in skepticism. Of course, today u have to know that books and manuscripts are mostly unique and therefore not available and visible to everyone.
