1910 New Catholic Dictionary
(Hebrew: aphad, clothe)
A robe of the high priest, mentioned in the Old Testament, like the scapular worn externally by monks. The two parts were clasped together on the shoulders with two onyx stones, on each of which were engraved the names of six tribes; it was probably held in place by the girdle. It was made of finest linen and wonderfully embroidered in gold, blue, purple, and carmine.
