I don't know if this relates to your query but the putative site of the Temple in Jerusalem, as I recall, was surmounted by a type of plinth called the "Millo" (if I have the history right)...
Perhaps this was an archaic term for what you are describing.
I also believe that at one time the word "basement" had a more formal reference than as it is used now...
