Episkopi Cantonment (Greek: Επισκοπή, Turkish: Episkopi Cantonment) is the capital of Akrotiri and Dhekelia, a British Overseas Territory on the island of Cyprus, administered as a base. It is located in the middle of the Western Sovereign Base Area, one of the two areas which comprise the territory. Although it is not the largest of the British military bases on the island, it is however home to both the civilian and military administration headquarters of the Sovereign Base Areas. Episkopi is the current command centre of British Forces Cyprus.[1]
