Caryae sided with the Persian enemies against Greece... the Greeks... took the town, killed the men... and carried off their wives into slavery... burdened with the weight of their shame and so making atonement for their State. Architects... designed for public buildings statues of these women, placed to carry a load, in order that the sin and the punishment of the people of Caryae might be known and handed down to posterity."  Vitruvius, De architectura (I.1.5)
