Columns are vertical, like the stone columns (pillars) around the outsides of Roman architecture. Rows are horizontal; it's the same word used for crops/trees planted in lines on flat ground, or plow marks in the earth. To "span" means to bridge, or cross between anchor points (two or more columns, two or more rows).
