EROI LOCALI E IMPERATORI A PERGE (PAMPHYLIA): I MONUMENTI
Local heroes and emperors at Perge (Pamphylia): the evidence
of the monuments
The subject of this paper is the analysis of some monuments of
the second century AD in Perge (Pamphylia), decorated with imperial portraits and statues of local gods and heroes. The case of the transformation of the South Gate into a monument celebrating the imperial dynasty, the city and the benefactor’s family shows how Plancia Magna acted at Perge. Plancia Magna, who financed important public works for the city, illustrates the role of benefactor of the senatorial class at that period. Imperial portraits are exhibited together with local gods and heroes also in the Nymphaeum North, in the South Bath and in the last redecoration of the theater (end of the third centuryAD).
