Capito Caius Ateius

Capito, Caius Ateius, a Roman jurist who flourished under Augustus and Tiberius. His undoubted ability and learning were used by the emperors to oppose the necessary legal reforms advocated by Labeo. Hence arose two rival schools of jurisprudence, the Sabiniani or Cassiani, so named from pupils of Capito, and the Proculeiani from Sempronius Proculus, a follower of Labeo. The echo of their disputes was heard for centuries. None of Capito's voluminous writings are extant.
