Andron (Greek: Ἀνδρῶν-ῶνος), or Andronitis, is part of a Greek house that is reserved for men and was used for entertaining male guests. Symposia, 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 religious and party paraphernalia, such as a Krater, kylikes and amphoras of wine.
Not all classical Greek houses were large enough to have a dedicated andron, and even those that did might have used the room for mixed-gendered events and women receiving female guests, as well as men hosting symposia.
