From coma (hair). Can be analyzed as the perfect passive participle of a first-conjugation verb *comō (I am furnished with hair), but only this perfect participle form and the present active participle form comāns are attested in Classical Latin, and post-classical uses of other verb forms are rare. Instead of a participle, this form could be analyzed as an adjective formed directly from the noun as coma +‎ -ātus (-ed).
