Capusa

the son of Oesalces, who was the uncle of Masinissa. While the latter was in Spain fighting on behalf of the Carthaginians, his father Gala died, and was succeeded in the sovereignty by his brother Oesalces. Oesalces also dying shortly afterwards, his son Capusa obtained the throne; but as he had not much influence among his people, one Mezetulus laid claim to the kingdom, and defeated and killed Capusa in battle. (Liv. 29.29.)
