English - Etymology

From Latin _capitālis_ (“of the head”), in sense “head of cattle”, from _caput_ (“head”) (English _cap_). Use in trade and finance originated in Medieval economies when a common but expensive transaction involved trading heads of cattle. Compare _chattel_ and _kith and kine_ (“all one’s possessions”), which also use “cow” to mean “property”. _This definition is lacking an etymology or has an incomplete etymology. You can help Wiktionary by giving it a proper etymology._
