The outer parts of such triptychs were typically hinged to the central one so that they could be closed over it, and in this case reverse sides were often painted.
Although "triptych" originally described a specific type of Roman writing tablet that had three hinged panels, it makes sense that the word was adopted first for a three-paneled painting, and then to include anything composed of three parts.
The related modern word "trifold" is popularly used to describe a common brochure format with two and three folds; or three hinged boards for museum, educational, commercial, and other displays.
