“The walls were broken by Atlantes, no two of which were alike, but all supporting a cornice wrought with arabesques exceedingly intricate in form, and more elegant on account of superadditions of color — blue, green, Tyrian purple, and gold.” Ben-Hur, book four, chapter 12, page 238

Superadditions: to add over and above; join as a further addition; add besides.
