Architrave (architrave)

Because I associate the word architrave more easily with Greek or Roman temples than with roman (Romanesque) churches, I have added this particular Wikipedia picture.
The parts, also used in Romanesque architecture are:

A - colonne (column)
B - chapiteau (capital)
C - abaque (abacus)
D - architrave (architrave)

This is an architrave of the Doric order.
