One of the interesting things about the funerary temple of 3rd Dynasty Pharoah Zoser (or Djoser) is that architect Imhotep wasn't quite confident enough to have separate columns, so they are all connected in pairs.

It wasn't until later (possibly later Old or early Middle Kingdom) when columns no longer were (as the Brits would say).... semi-detached.

It was these very first columns in Djoser's mortuary temple that later evolved into Greco-Roman, Carolingian, Romanesque.... etc. columns of all the ages...
