CAPITO´LIAS a town of Peraea, or Coelesyria, exhibited in the Peutinger Tables, between Gadara and Adraa, and placed in the Itinerary of Antoninus on the road between Gadara and Damascus, between Neue and Gadara, 16 miles from the latter and 38 from the former. It is otherwise unknown, except that we find an Episcopal see of this name in the Ecclesiastical Records. (Reland, p. 693.)
