i don't know if anyone else mentioned this but when talking about greek columns stephen says that ionic order is named after ionian sea. the correct is that it is named after ionia the region which is today the aegean coastline of turkey.
thats all :D

Presumably the Ionian sea is also named after Ionia? It makes more sense that the column would be named after a region than after the sea though.
