The Caryatid is an item in Mario is Missing! Caryatids are large statues that serve as replacements for traditional structural columns, with this one in particular belonging to the Erechtheion Temple. It gets taken by a group of Koopa Troopas within Athens, causing the Erechteion to shut down. Luigi then takes it for himself while he is in the city, and he shows it to random other people in the hopes that one of them recognizes it; all of them know where it belongs and provide extra trivia about the caryatids, such as how they have stood for 2000 years (actually around 2400 years). He is awarded $1650 for returning the Caryatid through the Erechteion's information booth.
