of the Tie
In 113 A.D., one of Rome's greatest
Emperors, the military genius Trajan, erected a marble
column to commemorate a triumphant victory over the
Dacians, who lived in what is now Romania.
The 2,500 realistic figures on the column sport no less
than three different styles of neckwear. These include
shorter versions of the modern necktie; cloth wound
around the neck and tucked into armor; and knotted kerchiefs
reminiscent of cowboy bandannas.
While Roman orators often wore
cloths to keep their throats warm, soldiers did not
cover their necks. In fact, writers such as Horace and
Seneca said only effeminate men covered their necks.
