Classically, Roman Doric columns are a modification of the distinct Greek Doric column
design.  During the Roman Renaissance period, the Doric column transformed its style
to include a base with molding and a plinth – as opposed to the Greek Doric column,
which had no base or plinth.  The integration of the column base for the Doric column
led to variations in the base style, and this page offers dimensions, specifications, load-bearing
 capacities and more resourceful information for the Roman Doric column with an Ionic
 (Attic) base molding / plinth.  Whether for architectural and structural purposes or
decorative and ornate purposes, Chadsworth's PolyStone® fiberglass composite Roman Doric
columns are a valuable investment into the beauty of your house or commercial building.
