(פֵּטַישׁ,pattish', only in the plur., marg. פֶּטֶשׁ pe'tesh., Chald., hosen," Da 3:21). What article of apparel is here denoted is not certain. Theodotion (perhaps also the Sept.) and the Vulg. understand a tiara; compare Greek πέτασος, Venet. Gr. vers. ἀναξυρίς; but the Heb. interpreters more correctly render a tunic or undergarment ( כֻּתֹּנֶת=χιτών), a signification that better agrees with an ample garment (from (פָּטִשׁ, to expand). The term does not elsewhere occur; but see Buxtorff, Lex. Talm. col. 1865. SEE DRESS.
