Cycloʹpean Masonry

.

The old Pelasgic ruins of Greece, Asia Minor, and Italy, such as the Gallery of Tiʹryns, the Gate of Lyons, the Treasury of Athens, and the Tombs of Phorõʹneus (3 syl.) and Danʹaos. They are said to have been the work of the Cyclops. They are huge blocks fitted together without mortar, with marvellous nicety.
