a latin lesson

I don't remember everything from my years of high school Latin classes, but I do remember that there are 3 main types of columns: Ionic, Doric and Corinthian. If my memory serves me correctly, these would be classified as Corinthian.

Arma virumque cano, Troiae qui primus ab oris (that's about as much of the Aeneid I can recite without having to look it up)
