Types of Columns - Tuscan Columns
The Tuscan column order has a plain design, with a plain tapered shaft, and a simple base, capital, and frieze. The order is a simplified variation of the Doric order by the Romans. Tuscan column architecture is characterized by an unfluted shaft and a capital that only consist of an abacus and an echinus. In proportions the pillar is similar to the Doric order, but overall it is significantly plainer. The column height is normally seven times the diameter width. In comparison to the other orders, the Tuscan order looks the most solid.

The "toscazo" is a common typo, by the way... have a look:

Los griego tomaron las tres órdenes clásicas agregándoles dos más de sus invenciones el ***orden toscazo*** y el compuesto.

***El Orden Toscano***: Es una derivación del dórico con las siguientes modificaciones tiene base, la columna es más alta y sus estrías, el capitel lleva algunas molduras en anillo, el entablamento es muy sencillo.

El Orden Compuesto: es una combinación del jónico y el corintio que forma de este la forma de castillo del capitel y de aquel, las volutas que sobresalen de las esquinas y dan al capitel vista por sus cuatro caras el fuste es estriado y el friso esta muy decorado.
