One mark of an elegant man was the refinement and opulence of his dress. The pattern of this silk robe consists of roundels containing confronted geese flanking a tree. The inscription band enclosing the roundel reads “Glory, prosperity and victory.” While the robe was cut as a riding coat with a flare at the hip, it was found with a small pillow and face covering, indicating that it was used as a burial garment.
