- Having the characteristics of a caryatid: as, a caryatidal figure or statue.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Some Early English work may be seen in the heads carved on some of the larger shafts and the caps of the subsidiary pillars, a noticeable figure being "a monk crouched in a caryatidal attitude and holding a chess-board."
