Wreathed, (fr. tortillé): i.e. encircled with a wreath, is not an unusual term. A good example is shewn on the head in the crest of MOORE.
Savage are frequently wreathed about the temples and loins with ivy, &c. The term is also sometimes applied to ordinaries instead of the term tortilly, q.v., and when so applied, means the same thing, and some examples will be found under that word.
