Klinai (couches; singular klin?) also known as lectus triclinaris were a type of ancient furniture used by the Ancient Greeks and Ancient Romans in their symposia or convivia. Three klinai were arranged in a 'U' shape, which together formed the triclinium, which was where the dinner guests reclined during the meal.
