Check this Ionic Greek column capital from the ancient city of Gadara (modern Umm Qais, Jordan) carved from local grey basalt. Ionic capitals were common throughout the Greek world from the 6th Century onwards and this capital probably dates from Gadara’s Hellenic period (4th - 1st Century BCE). The column base and column drum are probably not originally associated with this capital.
