Megaron A was an apsidal megaron built sometime between 1400 BC and 1100 BC at Thermon in Aitolia. It is located on the north side of the later Sanctuary of Apollo on the site, and is one of the oldest structures in the complex. Its simple, curvilinear style contrasts with the rectilinear construction of Megaron B and the Temple of Apollo. Small stones were used for the construction of the lower parts, wood and clay for the wall, and reeds for the thatching. Megaron A was between 70 and 80 feet long and ran roughly north to south. The interior was divided into a porch, a central rectangular chamber, and a smaller chamber in the apse.
