The answer is C. A Prytaneion is the name of a building which serves as a senate house for the chief dignitaries of the city and as a palace where distinguished visitors and citizens might be entertained. The meaning of the word Pryaneion refers to Greek architecture but not necessary of a specific style or a specific type of building.

It is a place where Grecian executives and the Greek government used to meet and discuss with other officials who help govern the city. However, a Prytaneion can also be used to house and entertain the people in charge of the Olympic Games as well as the winners.
