Antae

Antae

(Lat.), a species of pilasters used in Greek and Roman architecture to terminate the pteromata, or side walls, of temples, when they are prolonged beyond the face of the end walls. The first order of temples, according to Vitruvius, is called "in antis," because the pronaos, or porch in front of the cell, is formed by the projection of the pteromata terminated by antae, with columns between them.
