  1. Bank of Pennsylvani used Ionic Columns which created a Roman Portico and was even more Roman in emphasis upon the interior space. It had a Domed Ceiling (Pantheon like) and a Barrel-valulted room. The entire roof is covered with Marble .The fluted ionic columns looks like Villa Capra by Palladio near Vicneza. The Interior ceiling looked like the Pantheon with Coffers and an Eye in the Center.
