    It’s a common misconception for people reading older English literature to be perplexed by “divers”, as it often appears in phrases like “a coat of divers colour”.

    Modern readers for some reason seem inclined to assume this means the coat was red with a white stripe, but I suspect that predisposition is of “of nautical origins” and can be safely ignored.
