Andron (Greek: Ἀνδρῶν-ῶνος), or Andronitis, is part of a Greek house that is reserved for men, as distinguished from the gynaeceum (gunaikeion), the women's quarters. Symposium, social events with food and wine, were held in the andron. For this purpose the andron held several couches, usually an odd number to allow space for the door, tables which could be tucked under the couches, artwork and any other necessary paraphernalia.
