[Meaning] that which is put on the previous [thing].
Greek Original:
Ἐπίβλημα: τὸ τῷ προτέρῳ ἐπιβαλλόμενον.
This neuter noun is applied to bedspreads, hangings, patches, mantles, decorative embroidery -- most famously in the synoptic Gospels: "no man sews a patch onto an old garment" (Matthew 9.16, Mark 2.21, Luke 5.36). See generally LSJ s.v. (web address 1). Glossed by Hesychius (epsilon4641) as πῶμα "lid" or ῥάκος "ragged garment." The present, rather gauche, entry has no parallel in other lexica.
