One of the five Classical orders, and along with Tuscan added by the Romans to the original Greek Doric, Ionic and Corinthian.

The Composite column was developed  to sit at the top end of the scale along with the simple Tuscan order at the bottom end. The column is slender and fluted, topped with a capital, carved with scrolls similar to the Ionic order and filled with acanthus leaves.
