Etymology[edit]

From Middle English capital, borrowed 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”.
