Syrian capital (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

damascus

'syrian capital' is the definition.
(capital of Syria)

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for damascus that I've seen before include "Capital of Syria" , "ancient city" , "St Paul was converted on the road to this Syrian city" , "capital city" , "Syrian capital" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian, The Times, the Irish Times (Simplex) and The Telegraph.
