Evzone Uniform Honors Greece's Historic Past - The term “evzone” can be traced back to Homer’s writings. He referred to the elite soldiers of his time as “Evzones” because they were “well-built” (“zoni” means “belt” in Greek). Not much is known about how they actually dressed in Homer’s time. However, the fact that he mentioned them shows that the Evzone soldiers have been part of Greek military tradition since Ancient Greece.

The tunic largely replaced the older chitoniskos (or short chiton) as the main tunic of the hoplites during the later 5th century BCE. It was made of two rectangles of linen (other materials were also used), which were stitched together from the sides to form a cylinder, leaving enough space at the top for the arms.
