On the reign of Attalus III, see Potter, “Pergamum,” p. 229. Fränkel believed that the inscription with the decree honoring Attalus originated in Elaia, a city on the boundary of Mysia and Lydia, perhaps because it was found there. The inscription, however, probably originated in Pergamon; see Adela Yarbro Collins, “Pergamon in Early Christian Literature,” in Koester, ed., Pergamon, pp. 163–184, esp. pp. 173–174, note 38.
