Hint 1

The columns are Greek or Roman Corinthian architecture.  One of those may be a clue.


Hint 2

It looks like quite a few words have one uncommon letter of the alphabet.  And the ones that don't have more than one occurrance of a different letter.  There's a third letter that also matters.


Solution

Extract the X's, V's and I's from the words and phrases to make Roman numerals. Then convert those numbers to letters of the alphabet:

BIKINIS              III    3 C
EXOTOXIN             XXI   21 U
EXTRAVAGATING KIWIS  XVIII 18 R
EXERT SIX            XIX   19 S
XEROXING             XXI   21 U
EXPO SIXTY           XIX   19 S
POXVIRUS             XVI   16 P
EXOTOXINS            XXI   21 U
AIRSHIP              II     2 B
