Slide11 l.jpg

The oldest, simplest, and most massive of the three Greek orders is the________, which was applied to temples beginning in the 7th century B.C. The capitals are plain with a rounded section at the bottom, known as the echinus, and a square at the top, called the abacus. The entablature has a distinctive frieze decorated with triglyphs. In between the triglyphs are spaces, called metopes. The frieze is separated from the architrave by a narrow band called the regula. The Doric order reached its pinnacle of perfection in the Parthenon.

The ______ order is the ____________, which wasn't used much by the Greeks.

It is named after the city of Corinth, where sculptor Callimachus supposedly invented it at the end of the 5th century B.C. after he spotted a goblet surrounded by leaves. the Corinthian is similar to the Ionic order in its base,column, and entablature, but its capital is far more ornate,

carved with two tiers of curly acanthus leaves.

It is called ________because it developed in the Ionian islands in the 6th century B.C. Roman historian Vitruvius compared this delicate order to a female form, in contrast to the stockier "male" Doric order.

It's easy to recognize because of the two scrolls, called volutes, on its capital. The volutes may have been based on nautilus shells or animal horns.

Above the capital, the entablature is narrower than the Doric, with a frieze containing a continuous band of sculpture.
