ANDRO'NIDAS (Ἀνδρωνίδας), was with Callicrates the leader of the Roman party among the Achaeans. In B.C. 146, he was sent by Metellus to Diaeus, the commander of the Achaeans, to offer peace; but the peace was rejected, and Andronidas seized by Diaeus, who however released him upon the payment of a talent. (Polyb. xxix. 10, xxx. 20, xl. 4, 5.)
