Corinthian order staircase in Rome


The old buildings of Rome are full of staircases. In many of those the pillars are beautifully decorated in the Corinthian order. – So, when in Rome, look up.

Wikipedia: The name “Corinthian” is derived from the ancient Greek city of Corinth, although the style had its own model in Roman practice.
