A petasos in ancient Greece was wide-brimmed hat with a conical crown. The petasos worn by men had a rather low crown, while that worn by women had a tall one. In ancient Rome a petasos (also known as petasus)was usually made of wool felt, leather or straw, with a broad, floppy brim. It was worn primarily by farmers and travelers in classical times, and was considered characteristic of rural people. Regardless of the style the name is the Greek and Latin word for any hat.
