angle-capital. Capital at the corner of a colonnade or portico. In the Ionic Order the front and side of a normal capital differ, so to obtain volutes on both sides of the corner the volutes at the external angle are splayed outwards at 45° (or 135° to the planes of the front and side elevations). An angle-capital is not the same as an angular capital.
