entablature
Comprising of the architrave, the frieze, and the cornice, the entablature is the upper section that caps a colonnade, or the upper section of a wall in Renaissance and modern design. It commonly is 1/4 the column height, and rests directly upon the abacus. The entablature design varies greatly, especially depending on the order of the columns upon which it rests.
