Phelonium (φελόνιον), a cloak, which in the Greek Church corresponds to the chasuble in the Latin Church. This ecclesiastical vestment is worn by ,the priests, and that worn by the patriarch is embellished with triangles and crosses. This is supposed to have been the sort of garment which Paul left at Troas, and his anxiety for its restoration is to be at,tributed, we are told, to its sanctity as an ecclesiastical robe.
