Bergama, Western Turkey, July 2011. The Acropolis for Pergamon. Pergamon or Pergamum, was an ancient Greek city in Mysia, today located 16 miles (26 km) from the Aegean Sea in modern-day Turkey, on a promontory on the north side of the river Caicus (modern day Bak?rçay), that became the capital of the Kingdom of Pergamon during the Hellenistic period, under the Attalid dynasty, 281-133 BC. Pergamon was cited in the book of Revelation as one of the seven churches of Asia. Today, the main sites of ancient Pergamon are to the north and west of the farmers town of Bergama. The Turkish Aegean coastline is littered with historical sites dating back to the Greek classical era. Photo by Frits Meyst/Adventure4ever.com.
