Note 085
From Chapter 17 of the Decline & Fall

See Claudian in Cons. Prob. et Olybrii, 178, etc.; and in iv. Cons. Honorii, 585, etc.; though in the latter it is not easy to separate the ornaments of the emperor from those of the consul. Ausonius received from the liberality of Gratian a 'vestis palmata', or robe of state, in which the figure of the emperor Constantius was embroidered.
