The ancient theater of Nicopolis was built at the beginning of the 1st century AD with other public buildings of the city and has a capacity of 5000 spectators. Nikopolis – city of Nike (victory) – was founded in 31 BC by Octavian Augustus. It functioned during the New Aktia Games that had a religious nuance and was celebrated in honor of Apollo. The imposing Roman theater of Nikopolis was in use between the 1st century BC and the 3rd century AD. It has a capacity of 5000 spectators.
The theater is located 10 km north of the city of Preveza, on the National Road of Preveza – Ioannina. The visitor of ancient Nikopolis is stunned by the big surface of the archaeological site that extends from the Ionian Sea to Amvrakikos gulf, and by the number of the preserved monuments at a surface of almost 1500km2. The ancient site, except the theater, also includes the Ancient Walls, the Roman Odeon, the Nymphaeo, the Thermes and Smyrtoula observatory.
