Kolonsowa
A hood usually embroided with crosses, that is worn on the head by all monks. It is believed that the angel of the Lord had passed on the 'kolonsowa' and monastic habit to St. Anthony, father of monasticism, and to this day, it is worn by all Coptic and Syrian monks. Catholic Franschescan monks and other Orthodox monks also wear a 'kolonsowa', but usually with no embrodied crosses.
