Treves

(1 syl.). The Holy Coat of Trèves. A relic preserved in the cathedral of Tréves. It is said to be the seamless coat of our Saviour, which the soldiers would not rend, and therefore cast lots for. (John xix. 23, 25.) The Empress Helena, it is said, discovered this coat in the fourth century.
