From Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for October 31, Demogorgon:

These days his name is sometimes used in a more generic way of something that is bizarre or monstrous.

Is this "of" the same as in "the city of Rome"?

That's either a bad sentence, or there's a word missing. It would read better as:

These days his name is sometimes used in a more generic way of describing something that is bizarre or monstrous.
