The Composite Base And Pedestal

The pedestal corresponds closely to that of the Corinthian order, and again is a hybrid development from the Ionic. The Corinthian proportions are followed exactly, but the pedestal plinth has astragals both above and below the cyma reversa, whilst the cornice has an additional astragal beneath the cyma. Similarly, the column base mirrors the Corinthian, but with an astragal between the upper torus and the fillet of the shaft.
