Pergamon was an ancient Greek city in Aeolis, currently located 16 miles (26 kilometres) from the Aegean Sea on a promontory on the north side of the river Caicus.

Some ancient authors regarded it as a colony of the Arcadians. It became the capital of the Kingdom of Pergamon during the Hellenistic period, under the Attalid dynasty, 281–133 BC. Pergamon is cited in the Book of Revelation as one of the seven churches of Asia.
