    Excerpt from Catalogue of the Special Loan Exhibition of Decorative Art Needlework Made Before 1800

    Canon Rock, after quoting passages from the works of Pliny to show that the Phrygians were renowned for their skill in the art of embroidery, says that In Latin, while an embroiderer was called a Phrygian, Plzrygio, needlework was denominated P/zrygium or Phrygian stuff; hence when, as often happened, the design was wrought in solid gold wire or golden thread, the embroidery so worked got named A From this term comes our own' English word Orphrey.' Though deformed after so many guises, by the witless writers of many an inventory of church goods, or by the sorry cleric who, in a moment of needful haste, had been called upon to draw up a will other men, however small their learning, always spelled the word orp/zrey in English and aurzp/zryg ium in Latin.
