Caracalʹla [long-mantle]

.

Aureʹlius Antoniʹnus was so called because he adopted the Gaulish caracalla in preference to the Roman toga. It was a large, close-fitting, hooded mantle, reaching to the heels, and slit up before and behind to the waist. Aureʹlius was himself born in Gaul, called Caracal in Ossian. (See Curtmantle.)
