The Corinthian order is one of the classical orders of Greek and Roman architecture, as clearly seen in the Pantheon, Rome. It was also much used in medieval times. The Corinthian order was said to have been created by the 5th Century architect Callimachus, who was inspired by the sight of a basket that had been left on the grave of a young girl. A few of her toys were in it, and a square tile had been placed over the basket to protect it from the weather, an acanthus plant had grown through the woven basket, mixing its spiny, deeply cut leaves with the weave of the basket.
