[MC]

In the classical world, the simplest form of temple in which ‘the house of god’ is the same in plan as an ordinary house: a rectangular room, with the long side walls extended to form the walls of a porch, and with two columns between the antae (or wall endings), to support the porch roof and make a fine entry. A good example is the so‐called Treasury of the Athenians at Delphi, Greece.
