Strabo states that Attaleia was founded by Attalos II Philadelphos, the king of Pergamon, soon after his accession to power, possibly about 158 B.C. Its location, at the place of a small fishing settlement called Korykos, was around the harbour area. The city, together with her harbour, was always an attractive haven for pirates, particularly after the end of the Pergamene kingdom in 133 B.C. At the end of the second century B.C. pirates attained great power in the Mediterranean basin by taking advantage of the political hiatus that arose with the fall of the eastern Hellenistic kingdoms. The Roman governor of Cilicia, Publius Servilius Vatia, captured Attaleia in 77 B.C. Following his war on the pirates. The city lost her freedom after being annexed to the Roman Empire, but it is not clear whether she assumed the status of a Roman colony.
The Pamphylia region, in which Attaleia was located, was united with her western neighbour Lycia in A.D. 43 during the reign of Claudius. The new “double-province” was first given to the authority of the emperor and then to the Roman Senate. Around A.D. 47, Saint Paul visited Attaleia following his mission in southern Galatia.
