Ionic Angle Column from the Temple of Minerva Polias at Athens, Side

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

The good effect of the Ionic capital is really only produced by the front-view. It seems calculated to be introduced between pillars and antæ, and not in a disconnected peristyle with with angle columns. In angle columns, however, the volutes are sometimes constructed in such a way that they meet at both sides diagonally.
