Or "seira", as some [have it]. Alternatively[1] some sort of garment, which they used to wear on top of their tunics, just like cloaks.
Greek Original:
*zeira/: h)/toi seira/, w(/s tines. h)\ e)/nduma/ ti, o(\ e)penedu/onto meta\ tou\s xitw=nas, w(/sper e)fapti/das.
Abridged from Harpokration s.v., where Lysias (fr. 236 Sauppe, now 290 Carey OCT) is cited and Xenophon (Anabasis 7.4.4) quoted. Herodotus reports this kind of garment as worn by Arabians and Thracians: see LSJ s.v. and cf. zeta 47. For ephaptides, see epsilon 3843.
[1] So the transmitted text, both here and in Harpokration; but modern editions of Harpok. emend it to read (by the addition of a single letter nu) "It was".
