Susa or Soussa is a town and seaside resort in the District of Jabal al Akhdar in north-eastern Libya. Susa stands by the ruins of Apollonia, Cyrenaica. The town contains the Apollonia Museum. It is located about 30 km northeast of Bayda.Susa is home to an exiled Greek community from Crete and Mainland Greece, arriving at Ottoman Libya after the Greco-Turkish War of 1897, another wave of Muslim Greeks arrived after the Population exchange between Greece and Turkey, marking the City's second founding after its abandonment following the Arab Conquest of the Maghrebthe City is mostly inhabited by Muslim Greeks, also referred to as "Turco-Romnoi" HistoryThe Ancient City of Apollonia in Cyrenaica was founded in 630 BC by Greek colonists and became a significant commercial centre in the southern Mediterranean. It served as the harbour of Cyrene, 20km to the southwest.Apollonia became autonomous from Cyrene at latest by the time the area came within the power of Rome, when it was one of the five cities of the Libyan Pentapolis, growing in power until, in the 6th century A.D., it became the capital of the Roman province of Libya Superior or Libya Pentapolitana. The city became known as Sozusa, which explains the modern name of Marsa Susa or Susa, which grew up long after the cessation of urban life in the ancient city after the Arab invasion of AD 643.
