Composite Order. Grandest of the Roman Orders, essentially an ornate version of the eight-voluted Ionic capital known as the angular capital or Scamozzi Order under which are added two tiers of acanthus-leaves. Its entablature is also very ornate. It bears a resemblance to the Corinthian Order and is also called the Compound Order.
