The Greeks used three orders of style, the Doric, Ionic, and Corinthian, to which the Romans added the Tuscan and the Composite. Later the French came up with Gothic style which usually incorporated the old styles.
More can be learned on this subject by viewing the PBS program “The Western Tradition.”
