This plain tunic typifies Roman-style woven-to-shape tunics. These shirtlike garments were woven in a large cross shape, folded in half, and sewn together. Most commonly made of linen or wool, they could be long or short, with or without sleeves. Simple tunics, like the one seen here, were generally layered under more elaborate ones decorated with symmetrical ornaments.
