Didn't know that

Neil Gaiman informs (reminds?) the world that one of the words over-used by H.P. Lovecraft, 'Cyclopean' doesn't mean simply 'of giantlike proportions'.  It refers to a prehistoric style of construction common in the eastern Mediterranean, in which huge, irregular boulders were carefully fitted together without the use of mortar.

Lovecraft probably meant 'ancient beyond recorded time', not merely 'big', though the latter applies too.
