Definition: The part of a letter known as a finial is usually a somewhat tapered curved end on letters such as the bottom of C or e or the top of a double-storey a.

Another definition for finial is a swash or ornamental flourish, much like an extended serif, ascender, or descender, often added as a variation to some characters in a typeface.
