Apollonius the Effeminate (Ancient Greek: Ἀπολλώνιος ὁ Μαλακος) was a Greek rhetorician of Alabanda in Caria who flourished about 120 BC.

After studying under Menecles, chief of the Asiatic school of oratory, he settled in Rhodes, where he taught rhetoric.[1] Among his pupils were Q. Mucius Scaevola the augur, and Marcus Antonius, the grandfather of Mark Antony.[2]
