Corinthian Order
October 23

Developed by the Greeks in the 4th Century B.C., the Corinthian Order was the third of the three classical Greek orders. Finely proportioned with an elaborately detailed column capital of acanthus leaves and volutes, the order was a rich expression of beauty and architectural mastery. Later adapted by the Romans, the Corinthian Order still symbolizes the grandest of architectural expressions.
