The English name for the omentum. When a child is born with the membranes over the face, it is said to have been 'born with a caul.' In the catalogue of superstitions, this is one of the favourable omens. The caul itself is supposed to confer privileges upon the possessor; hence the membranes are dried, and sometimes sold for a high price. See Epiploon.
