Phelonion (Greek φαιλόνιον or φελόνιον)
A large conical sleeveless garment worn by priests over all other vestments, with the front largely cut away to free the hands. Byzantine rite Bishops may also wear the phelonion when not serving according to hierarchical rubrics. Corresponds to the Western chasuble. Russian phelonia (known as the felon (фелонь) or phelon) have a high, stiffened collar that covers the back of the head. In the Russian tradition, there is also a shortened phelonion that is worn by a reader at his tonsuring.
The Russian-style phelonion is used by the Russian Orthodox, Ukrainian Autocephalous, Ukrainian Orthodox (Moscow Patriarchate), Polish Orthodox churches, as well as the Orthodox Church in America. There is also a version used by some Ukrainian and Bulgarian Orthodox which is half-way between the Russian and Greek styles.
