It was employed for the rough garments for mourners (Esther 4:1; 1 Kings 21:27), in which latter passage the sackcloth is put next the flesh in token of extreme sorrow. Compare 2 Kings 6:30; Job 16:15.

Iliad, xviii., 28.

And Priam, mourning for Hector:

"In the midst the aged man

Strewn on his head and neck, which, when he rolled
