ἱμάτια κτλ.: the ἱμάτιον (toga) was a square cloak covering the whole body. Under this was worn the tunic (χιτών), of which χιτωνίσκος (tunicula) is a diminutive. The χλαμύς was a short military mantle; the ἐξωμίς, a sort of sleeveless short tunic worn by slaves and the lower classes generally. See Guhl and Koner, Life of the Greeks and Romans, p. 160 ff.

ἔπειτα: then. So εἶτα in 6.
