  • I was so sure that this word would mean something completely bizarre and not at all related to what it looks like that I was on my way over to make up a definition about fighting centaurs.

  • Why so perplexed, Tectquix? Peritus's meaning is correct, although I have more commonly encountered the form centauromachy, but both are correct and equally valid. The battle between the centaurs and the Lapiths, at the wedding feast of Pirithous, was a well-known theme in Greek art, most notably on the frieze of the Parthenon in Athens. Wikipedia offers this article about the battle.
