Roman Columns are particularly known for their deep, detailed fluting.  The two names that roman columns go by are the Roman Doric and the Roman Ionic.  The primary difference between the Roman Doric and the Roman Ionic is the type of capital that the column is crowned with.

The Roman Doric Order features an increase of isdecorative molding over the Tuscan Order.  Vignola's Denticulated Doric Capital has a stepped, three-fillet support of the echinus instead of the single-fillet support of the Tuscan Order.  The Roman Doric base is similar to the Tuscan, but the addition of the gbead above the torus molding is an elegant embellishment.  According to Vignola, the height of the Doric Column including capital and base should be eight diameters,  Vignola Denticulated Doric is imitated closely from the Theater of Marcellus.

The Roman Ionic Order's
distinguishing features are the scrolls that decorate the capital of the column.  These scrolls derived their intriguing shape from the shell of the Nautilus.  The most common representations of the Roman Ionic Order include the columns with 24 fluted separated by fillets that are about one-third their width.  Roman Ionic shafts are placed on decorative Attic Bases.  Customarily, the Roman Ionic Order column height including capital and base is nine diameters.  A prime example of the Roman Ionic Order as it was used in Rome is the Temple of Fortuna Virilis.
