There are two main fluting styles which are found in columns from antiquity, Ionic and Doric. Ionic fluted columns have 24 semi-circular flutes with a flat surface between the flutes called a fillet. Doric fluted columns are more shallow, and are constructed with 20 flutes that come to a point between each flute.
