Contest #798 – Roman Odeum Of Nicopolis, Preveza, Greece

Large Roman settlements often contain 2 things, an “Agora”, or forum, and an “Odeum”, or amphitheater. Built in the mid first century by the Roman emperor Octavian (adopted son and anointed successor of Julius Caeser), this site near the entrance to the Ambracian Gulf which served as the capital city of the Epirus Vetus province contains both.
