First magistrate attested in Athens in 88/87 BC [Thompson issue 75]. Originally from Ionian Teos, then Athenian citizen. Possibly the same person as Apellikon, the first magistrate in 60/59 BC [Thompson issue 103] (PA 1343, Thompson 1961, p. 551, LGPN p. 41); but with good reasons Habicht distinguishes two persons, Apellikon, the elder (pp. 11-12) and Apellikon, the younger (p. 17): See M. Thompson, The New Style Silver Coinage of Athens (1961) nos. 1130-1142 / issue 75 (p. 551); C. Habicht, Zu den Münzmagistraten der Silberprägung des Neuen Stils, Chiron 21, 1991, p. 6 (88/87 BC), issue 77; Prosopographia Attica 1343; P. M. Fraser – E. Matthews, A Lexicon of Greek Personal Names II Attica (1994) p. 41 s. v. Apellikon, no. 1; W. Leschhorn, Lexikon der Aufschriften auf griechischen Münzen II (2009) p. 334 s. v. Apellikon.
