αἴθουσα : portico, corridor. We distinguish two αἴθουσαι, an outer and an inner, see plate III. at end of vol ume.—(1) the outer (αἰθ. αὐλῆς, Od. 21.390, ν 176, Od. 22.449), on either side of the vestibule, entering the court.—(2) the inner (αἰθ. δώματος), leading from the court into the house; this one served as a sleeping-place for guests (Od. 3.399, Od. 4.297), and was roofed.
