About two thousand years ago, on the 2nd of September 31 B.C., a naval battle took place in Actium, near the Ambracian Gulf, between two Roman generals. Octavian Augustus, a great Roman general, who later proclaimed Emperor of Rome, battled against Cleopatra, the Queen of Egypt and Mark Antony, another great Roman general.
The winner of that battle was Octavian Augustus. In order to remember this important victory Octavian founded a city named Nicopolis (City of Victory). He wanted to make Nicopolis an important and powerful city. He beautified Nicopolis with important buildings such as the Theatre, the Stadium, the Odeum, public baths, fountains, etc.
Among them was the Roman Aqueduct.
