Nota de aplicación

Eastern Orthodox ecclesiastical stoles, in which the two ends are sewn together and hang straight down in front to the knees or to the floor, with an opening remaining at the top through which the head is passed. The front may also be made of a solid piece of fabric rather than two separate pieces. The sticharion and epitrachelion are held together by the zone (girdle), a narrow belt of stuff with clasps. It differs from the Western church stole in that it hangs straight instead of being crossed over the chest.
