In the Eastern Orthodox and Eastern Catholic liturgical tradition, the omophor (Slavonic: омофоръ, omofor; Greek: ὠμοφόριον omophorion, meaning "[something] borne on the shoulders") is the distinguishing vestment of a bishop and the symbol of his spiritual and ecclesiastical authority. Originally of wool, it is a band of brocade decorated with four crosses and an eight-pointed star and is worn about the neck and shoulders.

The small omophor is much simpler than the great omophor and passing around the neck and hanging down in the front similar to an epitrachil (stole), only wider and shorter, coming down only a little past the waist, it is worn simply around the neck and hanging in two pendants on the chest is properly worn in place of the large one after the gospel at the Liturgy. The omophorion signifies the bishop's authority and typifies the wandering sheep that the Good Shepherd takes upon his shoulders and carries to his Father.
