Everyone is amazed by the beautiful Karyatids, or Greek architectural props. For tourists, they are no less interesting than the Parthenon, and certainly more spectacular. However, does everyone know where the name comes from and what does it mean? Well, Caryatid refers to a small town near Sparta, Karyai. The inhabitants of the village, in 480 BC, in fear of a devastating war, supported themselves on the side of Persia. In fact, the Persians looted, burned and murdered. However, as early as in 479 BC Greece won the battle of Salamis, later at Platejas, to defeat the invaders. The Athenians did not forgive the inhabitants of Karyai, they murdered all men, and the women took captives. Figures Caryatid are to be a warning against repeating the infamous attitude of countrymen.
The Greeks, the columns of the Erechtheion, call Kores. They are supposed to be girls who watch over the grave of the legendary Kekrops, half-man, half-serpent.
