Charax of Pergamum
CHARAX OF PERGAMUM
CHARAX OF PERGAMUM (probably second half of the second century c.e.), writer of Asia Minor. In a passage extant in the geographical lexicon of the sixth-century Stephanus of Byzantium (s.v. ʿΕβραῖοι), Charax states that the appellation "Hebrew" for the Jews stems from Abramon (Abraham). A similar explanation is given by *Artapanus.
