Thayer's Expanded Definition
 Νικόπολις, Νικοπολισεως, (city of victory), Nicopolis: Titus 3:12. There were many cities of this name — in Armenia, Pontus, Cilicia, Epirus, Thrace — which were generally built, or had their name changed, by some conqueror to commemorate a victory. The one mentioned above seems to be that which Augustus founded on the promontory of Epirus, in grateful commemoration of the victory he won at Actium over Antony. The author of the spurious subscription of the Epistle seems to have had in mind the Thracian Nicopolis, founded by Trajan ((?) cf. Pape, Eigennamen, under the word) on the river Nestus (or Nessus), since he calls it a city 'of Macedonia.' ( B. D. under the word.)

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this verb construed with the acc. and inf., as in John 21:25, cf. P Eleph 13.6 (B.C. 223–2) οὐκ οἶμαι [δ᾽ αὐτὸν ἔχειν ἐξ ὧν ἡ μήτηρ αὐτοῦ ἀνήγγελλεν, P Petr III. 51.5 (Ptol.) τὸ ἀργύριον δ ὤιοντο ἀπολωλέναι ἐν τῶι μαρσιππίωι, ";the money which they thought had been lost in the purse"; (Edd.), and P Oxy XIV. 1666.2 (iii/A.D.) οἴομαι τὸν ἀδελφὸν Σαραπάμμωνα μεταδεδωκέναι ὑμεῖν δι᾽ ἣν αἰτίαν κατῆλθον εἰς Ἀλεξάνδρειαν, ";I think that my brother Sarapammon has told you the reason why I went down to Alexandria"; (Edd.). It is construed with the inf. alone, as in Philippians 1:17, in P Eleph 12.1 (B.C. 223–2) καθάπερ ὤιου δεῖν, P Flor III. 332.6 (ii/A.D.) οἰόμενος δύνασθαι τυχεῖν ἀδίκως πραγμάτων, and P Oxy VI. 898.24 (A.D. 123) οἰομένη ἐκ τούτου δύνασθαι ἐκφυγεῖν ἃ διέπραξεν, ";thinking by this means to escape the consequences of her misdeeds"; (Edd.). In these passages the underlying idea of the verb seems to be ";purpose,"; as frequently in later Greek : see Kennedy EGT ad Phil l.c., and cf. Schmid Attic. i. p. 128, Schweighäuser Lex. Polyb. s.v. Οἴομαι occurs in connexion with dreams in P Leid C i. 4 (B.C. 163–2) (= I. p. 118) οἴετο ἐν τῷ ὕπνῳ καταβαίνου, and P Par 50.15 (B.C. 160) οἴετο ἄνθρωπον λέγειν μοι · φέρε τὸ δέρμα τοῦ ποδός σου καὶ ἐγὼ δώσω σοι τὸ δέρμα τοῦ ποδός μου, also ib..17 ᾤμην οἰκίαν καθαίρεσθαι, καλλύνοντος αὐτήν. The root is * ϝ ις -ιο - : cf. Lat. ̯men, old Lat. ̯smen (*ou̯is–men) (Boisacq, p. 692).
