Ca'pito, Insteius

a centurion in the Roman army which carried on the war under Domitius Corbulo against the Parthian Vologescs, A. D. 54. The king, after being defeated, sent hostages who were delivered up to Capito. He is probably the same whom we meet with three years later, in those same regions as praefectus castrorum, to whom Corbulo entrusted some of the smaller fortresses in Armenia. (Tac. Ann. 13.9,39.)
