Antipatris,

Antipatris, or Antipatris

(for his 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-Sabba still retains the ancient name of Antipatris.
