styles of classical architecture, most readily recognizable by the type of column employed
English: Also known as classical orders. There are four ancient Greek orders — Doric, Ionic, Corinthian, and Aeolic (which is usually omitted on account of it rarity) — and two "Roman" orders — Tuscan (or Etruscan, as it was invented by the Etruscans) and Composite. There are also other orders, mostly modern derivatives of the ancient ones, including the superposed, the colossal (or giant), the Ammonite, and the "nonce" orders.
