Salvete!

I have got a question regarding the tunica worn beneath the toga.

The senatorial tunica was called tunica laticlavia. Did this tunica have two broad purple stripes, one over each shoulder similar to the tunica angiclavia of the equestrians, or dit it have one broad stripe on the front and one on the back, from the neck downward?

I have seen both versions in different movies and am not sure, which is the corect one. Or did the style change from the Republic to the Empire?

Valete!
