Crossword Genius

Rome, for example, is excellent (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

capital

I believe this clue is a double definition.

'rome for example' is the first definition.
(rome is a kind of capital)

'excellent' is the second definition.
(I've seen this before)

'is' is the link.

(Other definitions for capital that I've seen before include "Major city - investment - great!" , "A great city - that's fine" , "Excellent - assets - first city" , "Money available to produce interest" , "Finance - excellent!" .)
