It's not Egyptian Tunic, It's a Roman Tunic and it's used with belt or cord/rope around waist

Yeah but Orthodox Copts were Roman Citizens who lived in Arab Caliphate. Even today they use similar tunics a bit more modern.

Also "Roman Tunic" I meant in cultural aspect, technically Roman Tunic can be used by anyone :>
