Omophorion

Clergy and ecclesiastical institutions subject to a bishop's authority are often said to be "under his omophorion."
When the [[rubrics]] call for the omophorion to be removed and replaced frequently, the standard ''great omophorion'' is replaced for the sake of convenience with the ''small omophorion'', a shorter band worn after the manner of an [[epitrachelion]]. In some places, when several bishops [[concelebation|concelebrate]], it is now the custom for the chief celebrant to use the great omophorion when called for, and the other bishops to wear the small omophorion throughout.
The equivalant equivalent of the omophorion in the [[Church of Rome]] is called the [[pallium]].
