Adler number: tau,465
Translated headword: tebennos, toga
Vetting Status: high
A Roman garment, [named] from Tebennos, an Arcadian who first put on this outer-garment; for he sailed down the Ionian Gulf and was received by the settlers living there. Learning from him, the natives clothed themselves in the same way and called the garment a tebenneion,[1] named after the inventor. But subsequently the name changed and became tebennos.
