from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- adj. In architecture, consisting of a circular range of columns; monopteral.
The premires are of red brick with stone dressings, and the corner is emphasised by a semi-octagon bay window above the shopfront, over which is a cyclostylar arrangement of one story of columns, or a small perstyle without a core.
Add to it but another architectural feature, — let it Crown the circular peristyle, and we have before us a type or model of structures that have delighted the world, — the cyclostylar monument of Lysicrates, — the temple of the Sibyl at Tivoli.
This word is Greek in origin.
