Toga, the distinctive mark of Roman citizenship, was an outer garment of white woollen cloth. It was elliptical in cut, about five yards in length and four in width, and was doubled lengthways in such a manner that one fold exceeded the other in depth. It was worn over the left shoulder, one extremity touching the ground in front, whilst the eleven or twelve feet which remained at the back were gathered up under the right arm and thrown a second time over the left shoulder.
