According to Greek mythology Heracles used a net to catch the Erymanthian Boar in a gorge near Antroni. Antroni was part of the municipality of Lampeia between the 1830s and 1912. It was an independent community until the 1998, when it joined the new municipality of Lasiona. This in turn became part of the municipality Archaia Olympia in 2011.
