Clothing Of The Medes

( Originally Published 1928 )

After the fall of Nineveh, the Medes reigned.

The Tunic.—The Medes wore long, full-sleeved tunics, raised in front and drawn through cord loops placed at each side of the waistline.

The Mantle.—Its fullness also was caught up through rope girdles in front, thus binding and distorting the figure.

Hairdressing.—Hair was curled like that of the Assyrians; the women's heads roped with pearls. Round bon-nets were worn.
