propylaeum (plural propylaea or propylaeums)

  1. A vestibule or entrance to a Greek temple
    • Thomas Hardy, The Well-Beloved
      On either side of the road young girls stood with pitchers at the fountains which bubbled there, and behind the houses forming the propylaea of the rock rose the massive forehead of the Isle — crested at this part with its enormous ramparts as with a mural crown.
