Along with this form of the name of the city (Strabo, Polyb. al.) is to be found (ἡ) Πέργαμος (Xen. Paus. al.) The two occurrences in the NT (Revelation 1:11; Revelation 2:12) are in the acc. and dat., leaving the nom. uncertain, and curiously no ex. of the nom. can be quoted from Fränkel’s Pergamene inscrr. (see Perg in Index III.) For features in the history and character of Pergarnum, which make the message of Revelation 2:12 ff. specially appropriate, see Ramsay Letters, p. 291 ff., and the art. in EB s.v. Pergamos.
The city gave its name to ";parchment"; (περγαμηνή, charta pergamena), which was first manufactured here : see Gardthausen Griech. Palaeographie.2 i. p. 93 ff.
