Adranon (present day Adrano) is ancient polis and archaeological site on the southwestern slopes of Mount Etna, near Simeto River, known for the "simetite" variety of amber" northwest of Catania. The ancient city was founded by the ancient Greek ruler Dionysius I of Syracuse around 400 BCE upon a pre-Hellenic neolithic settlement, near a temple dedicated to the god Adranus, worshiped throughout Sicily. Adranus was associated with volcanoes and equated eventually with Hephaestus. The city was conquered by Timoleon at 343-342 BCE and subjugated to Rome in 263 BCE. Romans declared it a civitas stipendiaria (city that had to pay tribute to Rome).

  • Adranon (auch Hadranum, heute Adrano) war eine antike Stadt auf Sizilien. Adranon wurde um 400 v. Chr. von Dionysios I. von Syrakus in der Nähe des sikulischen Heiligtums für den Gott Adranos, der auch der Stadtgott werden sollte, am Fluss Adranos, einem Nebenfluss des Symaithos, am Westhang des Ätna gegründet. In der Nähe Adranons schlug Timoleon im Bund mit den Adranonianern Hiketas von Syrakus. 263 v. Chr. wurde die Stadt von den Römern erobert und erhielt das ius Latii. Noch heute gibt es bedeutende Überreste der antiken Siedlung. In der Nähe der Stadt befand sich das sikulische Zentrum Mendolito. Hier fand man Inschriften, Münzen und prähistorische Töpferware. Die Funde befinden sich heute in der Sikulischen Sammlung im Museum auf der Normannenburg in Adrano. (de)
