Description

The beautiful ancient buildings, which once graced the top of this Mount Pagos (modern name: Kadifekale), have been compared to a crown. One poet compared Smyrna to a statue of the mother goddess Cybele with her feet on the sea and her head crowned with a circle of beautiful buildings. The promised “crown of life” (Revelation 2.10) has been said by some to refer to the top of Mount Pagos.
