- n. Same as gigantomachy.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
The portico, in spite of its too steep gable (once filled with a “gigantomachia” in gilt bronze) and its somewhat awkward association with a round building, is nevertheless a noble work, its capitals in Pentelic marble ranking among the finest known examples of the Roman Corinthian.
Quod pro gigantomachia amores scribere sit coactus.
