Nicopolis: City of victory, where Paul intended to winter
(Ti 3:12) There were
several cities of this name. The one here referred to was most
probably that in Epirus, which was built by Augustus Caesar to
commemorate his victory at the battle of Actium (B.C. 31) It is the
modern Paleoprevesa, i.e., "Old Prevesa." The subscription to the
epistle to Titus calls it "Nicopolis of Macedonia", i.e., of Thrace.
This is, however, probably incorrect.
