- n. From the Latin "tunica", the French "tunique", and the Old English "tunece". An ancient gown-like garment worn by men and women equally, used by the Greeks and Romans. Lately, at medieval times, in England, it evolved into a body-garment, resembling a coat. Nowadays, it is thought commonly as a plain body-coat.
