The khat was a head cloth worn by the nobility of Ancient Egypt. Simpler than the nemes headdress, it did not have pleats or stripes, and hung down open in the back rather than being tied together.
|The kha-t [kkr is a Sanskrit word meaning 'someone torn'. In the beginning of religion, a torn cloth without strips (khat) represented a cloud (khat), which became the religious mark as a custom. Later on, 'nemes' became a religious mark, which is the representation of 'lightning'. Torn apparel is a synonym of cloud, which is torn by lightning.|
