These are ancient Grecian columns of the Doric style. Notice no base at the foot of the column, concave vertical fluting around the entire column, and the minimal ornamentation of the captial. From the capital, the column meets a square piece of stone called an abacus which then connects to the top horizontal stone. This temple dates back to about 580 BC.
