The '''eileton''' (Greek) or , in Slavonic '''iliton''' (Slavonic), is a silk cloth containing slightly larger than the [[antimension]] that is folded around it at the conclusion of the [[Divine Liturgy]], and which is left on the [[altar]] table.
Different commentators have said that it represents the burial cloth around Jesus' head, the Resurrection, or the infant Jesus' swaddling clothes.
