Tiar definitions

Webster's 1828 Dictionary

TI'AR
TIA'RA, n. [L. tiara.]
1. An ornament or article of dress with which the ancient Persians covered their heads; a kind of turban. As different authors describe it, it must have been of different forms. The kings of Persia alone had a right to wear it straight or erect; the lords and priests wore it depressed, or turned down on the fore side. Xenophon says the tiara was encompassed with the diadem, at least in ceremonials.
2. An ornament worn by the Jewish high priest. Exodus 28.
3. The pope's triple crown. The tiara and keys are the badges of the papal dignity; the tiara of his civil rank, and the keys of his jurisdiction. It was formerly a round high cap. It was afterward encompassed with a crown, then with a second and a third.

Webster's 1913 Dictionary

Tiar Ti"ar, n. [Cf. F. tiare. See Tiara.] A tiara. [Poetic] --Milton. Tennyson.
