What is the decorative top of a column?
Likewise, people ask, what is the decoration at the top of a column called?
The term column applies especially to a large round support (the shaft of the column) with a capital and a base or pedestal, which is made of stone, or appearing to be so. A small wooden or metal support is typically called a post, and supports with a rectangular or other non-round section are usually called piers.

The shaft, which rests upon the base, is a long, narrow, vertical cylinder that in some orders is articulated with fluting (vertical grooves). The shaft may also taper inward slightly so that it is wider at the bottom than at the top.
Besides, what is the top or crown of a column called?
Of the three columns found in Greece, Doric columns are the simplest. They have a capital (the top, or crown) made of a circle topped by a square. The shaft (the tall part of the column) is plain and has 20 sides. The area above the column, called the frieze [pronounced “freeze”], had simple patterns.
What is a column and row?
Alternatively, in a table (which I assume you're referring to), rows are "horizontal" collections of items belonging to a certain category; columns are "vertical" collections. Each item (orange) in the table "belongs" to one row (yellow) and one column (red).
