mæanders

  1. plural of mæander
    • 1836 CE, W. R. Hamilton, On the Polychromy of Greek Architecture, in Transactions of the Institute of British Architects; volume I, page #86:
      Above the relief projects also a broader fascia, on which a rich mæander has likewise been painted  ; both these mæanders, it seems, were red  ; above this last mæander, and separated from it by a bird’s beak moulding decorated with leaves, was another broad fascia between the beams of the roof, with a beautifully twisted palm‐leaf ornament  ; upon this was an ovolo painted with eggs, and finally over this last the soffits of the roof.
