Pergamos, also known as Pergamum or Pergamon,  was a wealthy city established as one of the major cultural centers of the ancient Greek empire during the second century BC.  When Rome took over and Augustus Caesar established the cult of emperor worship close to the turn of the first century, Pergamos was chosen as the headquarters, and a temple was built in honor of Rome and Augustus, approximately 29 BC.
