Diadumenian, Mid May - 8 June 218 A.D., Nikopolis ad Istrum, Moesia Inferior
|Nikopolis|, |Diadumenian,| |Mid| |May| |-| |8| |June| |218| |A.D.,| |Nikopolis| |ad| |Istrum,| |Moesia| |Inferior|, NEWNicopolis ad Istrum was founded by Trajan around 101-106, at the junction of the Iatrus (Yantra) and the Rositsa rivers, in memory of his victory over the Dacians. Its ruins are located at the village of Nikyup, 20 km north of Veliko Tarnovo in northern Bulgaria. The town peaked during the reigns of Trajan, Hadrian, the Antonines and the Severan dynasty. In 447, Nicopolis was destroyed by Attila's Huns. In the 6th century, it was rebuilt as a powerful fortress enclosing little more than military buildings and churches, following a very common trend for the cities of that century in the Danube area. It was finally destroyed by the Avar invasions at the end of the 6th century.
