Kapisīsa

1. Kapisīsa.– A Tamil general subdued by Duṭṭhagāmaṇī at Kacchatittha after a siege of four months. v.l. Kavisīsa. Mhv.xxv.12

2. Kapisīsa.– A minister of King Vaṭṭagāmaṇī. One day when the king, accompanied by his queen, was going up the steps of the Ākāsa-cetiya at Acchagalla-vihāra, he saw the minister, who had come down after the sweeping of the cetiya, sitting by the roadside. Because Kapisīsa failed to prostrate himself before the king, the latter slew him (Mhv.xxxiii.68 f).
