a work on Isauria (Ἰσαυρικά）
He is called by Suidas (s. v. Καπίτων
) and Eudocia (p. 267) an historian, and the author of a work on Isauria (Ἰσαυρικά
), which consisted, according to Suidas, of eight books, and is frequently referred to by Stephanus of Byzantium. The latter writer (s. v. Ψίμαδα
), quotes the fifteenth book of it; but the reading in that passage seems to be incorrect, and one MS. has έ
instead of πεντεκαιδεκάτω
Greek translation of the sketch of Roman history which Eutropius had drawn up from Livy
This Capito also made a Greek translation of the sketch of Roman history which Eutropius had drawn up from Livy.
The translation, which is mentioned by Suidas (l.c.
) and Lydus (De Magistr. Prooem.
), is lost.
His work or works on Lycia and Pamphylia have likewise perished.
