I have a small wood shop and make various tables/frames and other wood related items. A common tool I use is a plunge router which is an electric device which spins a router bit to make interesting edges, curves, and inlays in wood.
A particular router bit, which I always found interesting, is called a roman ogee. It leaves a nice pattern and I usually use it for making a roman ogee edge on a piece of wood.
I'm somewhat interested in the history of Rome (Although I haven't picked up a book in it yet) and was curious about the link between this pattern and the historical link between Rome.
I decided to educate myself in the terminology and found out that ogee actually means an S like curve. Here is the wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ogee
Is there any evidence of a historical link, or is this just the name of it "Because reasons/marketing"? Was it actually used in roman architecture/woodcraft?
Here are some posts of the router pattern:
There Also may be a negative "Cut Out" with the roman ogee bit:
