Antipatris


Antipa’tris, or Antip’atris (for this father), a town to which the soldiers conveyed St. Paul by night on their march, Acts 23:31. Its ancient name was Capharsaba; and Herod, when he rebuilt the city, changed it to Antipatris, in honor of his father, Antipater. The village Kefr-Saba still retains the ancient name of Antipatris.
