feminile, a modo di femina


Explanation:
scusa maria, ma non ho fatto il caso che chiedevi la risposta in italiano.

allora:
"marmoreas muliebres" fuori dal contesto non vuole dire un gran che.
penso che intendevi la descrizione delle cariatidi: ...quis statuas marmoreas muliebres stolatas, quae cariatides dicuntur....(vitruvius: de architectura)
"statua marmorea muliebris stolata" =
statua marmorea feminile vestita di stola
(muliebris stolata = puo essere tradotto anche come: vestita a mo' di femina)

"statuas marmoreas muliebres stolatas"
e' accusativo plurale
