Historical background

Pamphylia - Perge

(221-188 BC)

Coining the name and type of Alexandre

Perge was an important city of Pamphylia between the rivers and Kestros Katarrhaktes. The city was famous for its temple of Artemis and the cult was rendered to him. Pamphylia and Perge was the subject of fratricidal strife between the Ptolemies and Seleucids. Perge had entered the Egyptian orbit in the first quarter of the third century BC before returning under the Seleucid domination to 253 BC during the reign of Antiochus II (261-246 AC). . Ptolemy III manages to recover in 241 BC but it was no longer part of the Ptolemaic conquest in 221 BC to the beginning of the reign of Ptolemy IV (221-204 AC).. Perge seems to have become a free city, which would explain the use of a new era. Perge have at least recognized the authority of the new Seleucid king, Antiochus III (223-187 BC). After the Battle of Magnesia in 190 BC and the proclamation of liberty cities pamphyliennes the following year by Gnaeus Manlius, Perge was assigned by the Treaty of Apamea (188 BC) to Attalid kingdom of Eumenes II (197-160 BC).
