Corinthian order

The capital, an architectural element found at the end of a load-bearing structure (such as a pilaster or a column) is usually decorated according to the canons of the classical age and the relative styles: Doric, Ionic, Corinthian, composite. The Corinthian order is characterised by the decoration of the capital with the typical acanthus leaves, while the other elements are the same as those of the Ionic order.
