Column of Marcus Aurelius

The Column of Marcus Aurelius is a Doric column with spiral relief as in the model shown here to the right. The model on Francis Cook's desk is a Corinthian column with fluting, as can just be made out on the left.

Trajan's Column is also spiralled. Here are the magnificent plaster casts at the V&A
