Is there a word besides βεστιάριον for wardrobe?

Is there an alternative for βεστιάριον (vestiarium) "wardrobe" from the native word-stock?
οὐ μέν πως πάντες βασιλεύσομεν ἐνθάδ᾽ Ἀχαιοί:
οὐκ ἀγαθὸν πολυκοιρανίη: εἷς κοίρανος ἔστω,
εἷς βασιλεύς, ᾧ δῶκε Κρόνου πάϊς ἀγκυλομήτεω
σκῆπτρόν τ᾽ ἠδὲ θέμιστας, ἵνά σφισι βουλεύῃσι. (Illiad 2.203-206)

That work also glosses the more concrete ἱματιοθήκη as vestiarium.
