 Pergamum
Pergamum existed at least from the 5th century BC, but it became important only in the Hellenistic Age (323-330 BC), when it served as the residence of the Attalid dynasty.
Initially they ruled Pergamum as vassals of the Seleucid Kingdom, but Eumenes I declared himself independent of Antiochus I (263 BC); when he died in 241 he was succeeded by his nephew Attalus I, who defeated the Galatians and assumed the royal title; the dynasty received its name from him.
The original Attalid territory around Pergamum (Mysia) was greatly expanded by 188 BC with the addition of Lydia (excluding most Greek coastal cities), part of Phrygia, Lycaonia, and Pisidia (from 183 BC), all former Seleucid territories.

 The Conflict Between Cato and Scipio
Cato's attacks on the Scipios (and on at least one prominent ally) appear to have gone beyond ordinary partisan conflict.
Plutarch tells us that when Cato was censor in 184 BC (possibly also the year in which the aforementioned prosecution took place) he excluded Lucius Quinctius, brother of Titus Quinctius Flamininus, the "liberator of Greece," from the Senate on the grounds of shocking abuse of power during his consulship.
Whatever Titus' affiliations before, he became a strong opponent of Cato and an ally of the Scipios, and it is likely that they already supported one another because of similar views on policy towards Greece.
