a kerchief of woollen (Varr. L. L.
5.130) or linen cloth (P. Diac. p. 57 M.), worn round the head by Roman
women in early times, and, after it had gone out of general use, retained as
part of the costume of certain priestesses (Varr. l.c.
). Among these may have been the Vestals; a coin engraved by
Saglio shows a kerchiefed female head and the letters V. V., i.e. Virgo Vestalis;
but not the Flaminica (Rich), whose
coiffure was undoubtedly the TUTULUS.
