A particular [sc. temple of] Athena at Delphi was named Pronoia, because of its being situated pro tou naou ["in front of the temple"].[1] Herodotus names her Proneie in his [book] 8.[2]
Greek Original:

Abridged from Harpokration (and Photius) s.v., commenting on Aeschines 3.108 (etc.) and citing other material. The headword, there and again here, should actually be Pronaia.
