Here is some information about Greek columns:

The fluted shaft could be made by creating a cross section and extruding it. The Doric capital is just a circle extruded and scaled a few times. The Ionic capital could be done by making the “scroll” profile and then extruding it to get the opposite side. The Corinthian Capital would be the hardest. Maybe you could make one “unit” of the repeating foliage then duplicate it as many times as you need.
