Piston port is a common configuration found in two stroke engines. In this configuration, the fuel/air mixture enters the engine through the intake port behind the the piston, proceeding to the crankcase, where it is then forced through the transfer ports into the cylinder to be burnt. The advantage of this design is overall simplicity as it requires no reed valves.
