ROMAN COLUMNS | TUSCAN COLUMNS | DECORATIVE COLUMNS | PORCH COLUMNS
Capitals & Bases
Columns are particularly known for their deep, detailed fluting.
The two names that roman columns go by are the Roman Doric and the Roman
Ionic. The primary difference between the Roman Doric and the Roman
Ionic is the type of capital that the column is crowned with.
The Roman Doric Order features an increase of isdecorative molding over the Tuscan Order. Vignola's Denticulated Doric Capital has a stepped, three-fillet support of the echinus instead of the single-fillet support of the Tuscan Order. The Roman Doric base is similar to the Tuscan, but the addition of the gbead above the torus molding is an elegant embellishment. According to Vignola, the height of the Doric Column including capital and base should be eight diameters, Vignola Denticulated Doric is imitated closely from the Theater of Marcellus.
