Nicopolis

NICOPOLIS (nĭ-cŏp'ō-lĭs, Gr. Nikopolis, city of victory). An ancient city of Epirus situated on the Gulf of Actium and founded by [[Augustus Caesar]] to celebrate his decisive victory over Mark Antony, 31 b.c. (In modern terms this city is “on the Gulf of Arta” on the west coast of Greece.) When Paul wrote his letter to Titus, in the interval between his first and his final imprisonment under Nero at Rome, he had determined to winter there (Titus.3.12).
