Greek woman from Smyrna, an important Aegean coastal town, today in Turkey. Many locales were named after Smyrna, notably in the USA. There's a "Smyrna" in the states of California, Delaware, Georgia, Maine, Michigan, North-Carolina & South-Carolina, Tennessee ... and two of them in New York. The original town itself cannot be called "Smyrna" however. The Turks insist that "Izmir", the  Turkish mispronunciation of its name, must instead be used in all languages.

This bridal and festival costume from Argyrokastro, with minor variations in the headdress, was worn by both Greek and Turkish women alike. It consists of a long white chemise, short waistcoat, long black overcoat embroidered in gold, and a gold belt and buckle. The breast is covered by the armatha, a chain ornament with gold-plated coins, which was worn for the wedding and then became a family heirloom. The head is covered with a silk headscarf hemmed with gold embroidery.
