a Graeco-Roman jurist, and one of the commission appointed by Theodosius the Younger to compile the Theodosian Code. In A. D. 429 he appears as comes and magister memoriac (Cod. Th. 1. tit. 1. s. 5), and he appears as comes sacri consistorii in the years 435 and 438. (Cod. Th. 1. tit. 1. s. 6; Nov. 1. Theod. II., printed in the Bonn Corpas Juris Antejust. as a second preface to the Theod. Cod.) There seems to be no reason, beyond sameness of name and nearness of date, to identify him with the Apollodorus who was comes rei priratae under Peaddius and Honorius A. D. 396, and was procoesul of Africa in the years 399 and 400. (Cod. T h. 11. tit 36. . s. 32; 16. tit. 11. s. 1.) To Apollodorus, proconsul of Africa, are addressed some of the letters of Symmachus, who was connected with him by affinity. (8.4, 9.14, 48.)
