Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
HOSEN . The plural of ‘hose’ (cf. ‘ox,’ ‘oxen’), only Daniel 3:21 AV [Note: Authorized Version.] , and now obsolete in the sense, here intended, of breeches or trousers. The article of dress denoted by the original is uncertain. According to an early tradition (LXX [Note: Septuagint.] tiara ), some form of headdress is intended (cf. RVm [Note: Revised Version margin.] ‘turbans’), but modern opinion favours ‘coats’ or ‘tunics’ as in RV [Note: Revised Version.] .
