Ionic Order
May 8

Developed by the ancient Greeks around the 6th Century B.C., the Ionic Order was the second of the three classical Greek orders. Carefully proportioned, the Ionic Order was characterized by a column capital with spiral volutes, a richly detailed entablature, and a fluted column shaft with molded circular base. Later adapted by the Romans, the Ionic Order was used widely until the introduction of the Corinthian Order, around the 4th Century B.C.
