 Nicomedia
Nicomedia was the favorite residence of Diocletian, who built there a palace, a hippodrome, a mint, and an arsenal.
Nicomedia suffered greatly during the fourth century from an invasion of the Goths and from an earthquake (24 Aug., 354), which overthrew all the public and private monuments; fire completed the catastrophe.
To-day Nicomedia is called Ismidt, the chief town of a sanjak directly dependent on Constantinople.

 Nicomedia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Nicomedia (modern İzmit, also known as Iznik) was founded by Nicomedes I of Bithynia at the head of the Gulf of Astacus (which opens on the Propontis) in 264 BC.
It was the metropolis of Bithynia under the Roman empire (see Nicaea), and Diocletian made it the chief city of the Eastern Roman empire.
Owing to its position at the convergence of the Asiatic roads to the new capital, Nicomedia retained its importance even after the foundation of Constantinople and its own capture by the Turks (1338).

 Eusebius of Nicomedia
The bishop of Nicomedia and his friends put forward an Arian confession of faith, but it had only about seventeen supporters from among three hundred members of the council, and it was hooted by the majority.
Small in stature, and young in years, he was at the head of a singularly united body of nearly a hundred bishops, and his energy and vivacity, his courage and determination marked him out as the one foe the Eusebians had to dread.
This claim of independence is a first sign of the breach which began with the foundation of Constantinople as New Rome, and which ended in the complete separation of that city and all its dependencies from Catholic communion.

Lucius Flavius Arrianus -or Arrian, as he is usually called in the English language- was born in Nicomedia, one of the Greek towns in the Roman empire, between 85 and 90 CE.
Arrian must have caught the eye of the Roman governor of Greece, Caius Avidius Nigrinus, and was one of his advisors in a boundary dispute that is known from an inscription from Delphi.
Usually, the next step was the quaestorship, which was held at the age of twenty-five when one had a very powerful patron, and the aedileship, two years later.

Nicomedia era la residenza di Diocleziano, che, divenuto imperatore, oltre ad esaltare gli antichi culti romani, fu l'autore di una delle più grosse persecuzioni contro i cristiani.
In seguito, a questi quattro ‘ protectores’, venne dato un nome, confondendoli con altro gruppo non militare, martiri anche loro a Nicomedia; fu abbinato ai 1003 martiri anche un vescovo di nome Pietro, ma anch’esso fu frutto di una confusione di personaggi.
Purtroppo di questa schiera di autentici cristiani, primi martiri a Nicomedia, della persecuzione di Diocleziano, non si sanno i nomi, ma vengono ricordati e celebrati tutti insieme con il titolo di ‘Martiri di Nicomedia’.

 Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2004.12.20
Second, if Menodotus of Nicomedia is not the source for the information about Ptolemy of Cyrene, then there is a surprising difficulty concerning our understanding of the revival of Pyrrhonism.
After reading this book, our knowledge of Menodotus of Nicomedia may appear less extensive than before: we can no longer confidently believe he was the innovator many thought he was, and we see that what is purely "Menodotan" may not be much.
However, we have a better understanding of the development of Empiricism, and, although at times we may want to take issue with P., we get a clearer idea of what is needed to defend a more traditional view of the history of Empiricism, or at least to nuance some of P.'s conclusions.
