The name Adrano derives from the Latin term Adranon, and the town was so called in honor of the homonymous god. The first inhabited center rose in 400 B.C., and it was founded by Dionisio I nearby the temple dedicated to the aforementioned divinity. In  344 B.C., it was the scenario of the famous battle of Adranon between the Leontini and the Corinthians. Afterwards, it was subjugated to the Roman dominion, and thus experienced a long period of decadence. During the Arab domination, it became a powerful feudal suburb, and under the Norman dynasty it became an important county called Adernò.
