Pergamon About 400 meters above sea level, the oldest settlement in the city, located between the two branches of Bakırçay, is dated to the 8th century AD. Pergamon, which means fortress, protected place in the name of Anatolia, was the capital of the Attalos dynasty in the Hellenistic period. The city was as much a cultural center as it was political. There were 60 thousand works in this library. They invented their own paper, parchment, on the Egyptian paper embargo. In the book of Lucius Ampelius, Zeus Altar, which the world showed among the ruins, was also made during this period. The struggle between the gods of Gigants and Olympos was carried out on the rugs of the platform at the Pergamon Museum in Berlin. The Uprising of Aristonikos, also known as the “oldest socialist uprising of the world”, was initiated here by the impoverished classes who were oppressed by the orders of the sovereigns, leaving the kingdom to Rome. The Hellenistic city became increasingly splendid in the Roman era. As it was in antiquity, the first Traian Temple strikes in the eyes of every visitor approaching the city today.
