Entablature is the name given to a horizontal member supported by the columns of a building of Classical style, e.g., Greek Revival. Traditionally, the entablature is deep (measured top to bottom) and represents the massive stone beam which topped the columns of ancient Greek and Roman buildings. In a wood-frame building, the entablature may be purely ornamental. When an entablature is present, the cornice is located above it.
