Yes, a simple quiz indeed (for those who took an art history class). I wasn't really sure where to put this, so I figured history would do.

You should have picture examples, and make us identify the style of each.

Huh. Funny idea. Seems a little sad with just the three - maybe drop the "Greek" and make it about column capitals in general, by picture? Tuscan, Doric, Ionic, Corinthian, Composite...throw in Egyptian, Minoan....?

When I clicked on this quiz I was thinking, "Sure hope there aren't more than 3, or I'm screwed."

Too much time! Just kidding, although when Sporcle introduces 10-second quizzes, this should be one of the first.

In the first three seconds I had Doric and Corinthian, and then spent the next twenty-five seconds trying to think of bloody Ionic.

I really should get back to the geography section. I must be lost.
