The Roman historian Pliny Called it: “By far the most famous city in all Asia”, the causes for this importance was that when John wrote his letter of Pergamum had been a capital city for almost four hundred years. After the mythical times Pergamum Had been the scene of several cultures ranging from those of the Stone and Bronze Ages until the Archaic and Classical Periods. Among the temples, Palaces and agora’s, the Asclepion, which were constructed in the course of one century belonged to the big Zeus Altar and the Parchment Library. They stand as the most brilliant works of Art of the fourth and third century B.C. in Anatolia. The parchment Library housed the most famous Collection of Books of that Tim written on a type of processed lamb and goat skins. This was a process invented in Pergamum, when the rulers of Ptolemean Egypt embargoed the export of Egyptian papyrus sheets to Pergamum. Other magnificent buildings of this period are the Temple of Athena And those of Demeter and Dionysus. We will then stop for lunch for approx. 1 hour and after lunch we will continue the tour and head for the Asclepion. Asclepion was known under the Name of “The Pergamum God of Health”.
