Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- To live like the Corinthians; hence, to lead a life of licentiousness and debauchery.
- In architecture, to design or to be designed somewhat in the spirit of the Corinthian order. Thus the Byzantine capitals of the fifth century and later, founded upon sharp, thistle-like leafage resembling the acanthus, are assumed to be deliberate imitations of Corinthian capitals, and may be said to be Corinthianized.
