CAP, Heb. מִגְבָּעָה, H4457, a maqtal participle meaning “headpiece” and used of the high priest’s vestment (Exod 28:40; 29:9; 39:28; Lev 8:13, KJV tr. “bonnet”). It was made of linen and prob. of conical shape with some definitive design. No known artistic representation is known to exist, and such livery was destroyed by a.d. 73 when the priestly functions ceased.
