Ca'pito, Fonteius

3. C. Fonteius Capito, a friend of M. Antony, accompanied Maecenas, in B. C. 37, when he was sent by Octavianus to Antony to restore friendship between Octavianus and Antony. Capito remained with Antony, and was soon after sent by him to Egypt, to fetch Cleopatra to Syria. He is probably the same person as the C. Fonteius Capito who was appointed consul suffectus, in B. C. 33, together with M'. Acilius. There is a coin of his extant with the heads of Antony and Cleopatra, and on which Capito is called propraetor, and bears the praenomen Caius. (Horat. Sat. 1.5. 32; Plut. Ant. 36; Eckhel, Doctr. Num. v. p. 219.)
