Example 81, fig. 82, represents an outline sketch of the 1 Corinthian column,' with pedestal complete. The height of column is diameters, including base and capital, a is the base of pedestal, b the die, c the cornice, d the base of column, e the shaft, f the capital, o the architrave, h the frieze, I the cornice.

Example 82, fig. 83, is the pedestal of the Corinthian order. The proportions are as follows, taking them in their order from 5c; the plinth be, 23$ parts in height, its projection from the central bd to a 57 parts; the if

torus, height 4, projection 56; fillet }, projection 55; cyma 5, projection 47; fillet 1, projection 47; cyma 3$, projection 42; die 3 modules 4$ parts; the cavetto in cornice 8}, projection 48 ; fillet projection 46 ; quarter-round 4J, projection 50; corona 4$, projection 53; cyma 3$, projection 57; the top-fillet 2$, projection 57.

Example 83, fig. 84, represents the base of the order, of which ab is the centre-line. The heights in the progression of their order, commencing with be, are as follows:. 10, 7, 2, 1, 4, 2, 6, 2$, 2. The projections, beginning with bd, are as follows: 42, 42, 38, 37, 32, 37, 35, 32.

Example 84, fig. 85, represents the capital of the order. The diameter of shaft at the neck is 52$ parts; the fillet 1$, its projection 56; the astragal 4, projection 60. The height from a to b is 70 parts, the projection from b to c 46, the projection from b to e 60. Join ef, prolong af, be to g and h; join ghby a line parallel tp 5 a, and mark off on it from g, as in die sketch. From the b i points obtained draw lines parallel to be; the intersection of these with ef will give the position of the acanthus leaves. The method of laying out
