Perperene, Mysia, 4th Century B.C.
|Other| |Mysia|, |Perperene,| |Mysia,| |4th| |Century| |B.C.|, NEWPerperene or Perperena was a city of ancient Mysia on the south-east of Adramyttium, in the neighborhood of which there were copper mines and good vineyards. It was said by some to be the place in which Thucydides had died. Stephanus of Byzantium calls the town Parparum or Parparon, but he writes that some called the place Perine. Ptolemy calls it Perpere or Permere. According to the Suda, Hellanicus of Lesbos, a 5th-century B.C. Greek logographer, died at Perperene at age 85. At a later date it was given the name Theodosiopolis or Theodosioupolis. It is located near Asagi Beykoy, on the Kozak plateau near Bergama in the Izmir province of Turkey in western Anatolia.
