apsidal (2)

Describes a room or building with an apse – that is, a semicircular wall or recess –  opposite its main entrance; apsidal long-houses (i.e. megara with a shallow porch, fronted by a pair of columns, leading by means of a central doorway into the building’s main room) are, along with rectangular long-houses, the chief forms of residential architecture of the Early and Middle Helladic Greek mainland.
