Nicopolis (Ni-kop´uh-lis; Gk., “city of victory”)

According to (Titus 3:12), the place Paul hoped to winter in and where he asked Titus to join him. Several towns were named Nicopolis, but this reference is almost certainly to the town founded in Epirus (west-northwest of Corinth) by Octavian in 31 BCE. (2Tim 4:10) may indicate that Titus joined Paul in Nicopolis and then went to Dalmatia.

Titus 3:12
