Ionic style

The Ionic style is the second of the three main orders of classical architecture, after Doric and before Corinthian.
Ionic columns, placed on a moulded base, are slender and fluted, reaching a maximum height of ten times the base diameter.
The Ionic capital is flattened with a flattened abacus above it, and is decorated with bi-frontal volutes, with an eye in the middle, which is sometimes decorated.
