Transcript of Greek Columns
The Greeks invented three types of columns to support their buildings. The three types of columns were Doric, Ionic, and Corinthian.
The Doric is the oldest and most simple column. This column has no base and the Doric is the least decorated column. Archaeologists believe that the Doric building evolved from wooden buildings that were very similar.
The Ionic column is more decorative than the Doric. The Ionic columns are taller and thinner and the capitals at the top of the columns are decorated with scrolls.
The Corinthian column is a lot like the Ionic column, but the capitals are even more elaborately decorated, usually with leaves and floral patterns.
How the columns were made.
The columns were made of stone from a tree trunk debarked with an adze.
