An important ancient settlement, located at modern Bergama in Turkey. It was first described in Xenophon's Anabasis and was later used as a treasury under Lysimachus. Pergamum became the administrative capital and principal city of the Attalid kingdom and dynasty (282-133 BCE) and was briefly the first capital of the Roman province of Asia. It later was a seat of a christian bishopric and is listed in Revelation as one of the seven churches of Asia. It was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2014 under "Pergamon and its Multi-Layered Cultural Landscape".

A Roman temple built above the Selinus river which was originally constructed for the worship of Egyptian gods, most likely Isis and/or Serapis. In the Byzantine era it was converted into a church of St. John. It was subsequently ruined, although the rotunda on the north side is still an active mosque.
