Showing the use of paint and, at left, the profile ofthe moldings. DECORATIVE ELEMENTS AND PAINTING Decorative moldings regularly adorned certain parts of Greek buildings, for example, the base and capital ofan Ionic column (8,28),the top ofa wall or pier (57), the underside and top of a cornice (front cover). The canons of architecture were so rigid for the Doric and Ionic orders that a specific molding was almost invariably associated with a given location on a building. Slight changes in the proportions of these decorative elements often give an indication of their date.

A given molding tended always to carry a specific design which could be either carved and painted (58) or simply painted. The interior walls, especially ofhouses, from the 5th century B . C . onwards, were also painted. The colors were black, white, yellow, but primarily red, often depicting masonry construction. The most elaborate architectural decoration on public buildings was sculpture, which could appear in any or all of three locations and usually portrayed mythological scenes. One location was the frieze, where it was carved in relief on the metopes of the Doric order (32) or all along the continuous band of the Ionic (59, over inner columns).
