In classical architecture, amphiprostyle denotes a temple with a portico both at the front and the rear. The number of columns never exceeded four in the front and four in the rear. The best-known example is the tetrastyle small Temple of Athena Nike at Athens.
See also the Temple of Venus and Roma.
