Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
ἀφεδρών aphedrṓn, af-ed-rone'; from a compound of G575 and the base of G1476; a place of sitting apart, i.e. a privy:—draught.
STRONGS NT 856: ἀφεδρών
ἀφεδρών, -ῶνος, , apparently a word of Macedonian origin, which Suidas calls 'barbarous'; the place into which the alvine discharges are voided; a privy, sink; found only in Matthew 15:17; Mark 7:19. It appears to be derived not from ἀφ’ ἑδρων, a podicibus, but from ἄφεδρος, the same Macedonian word which in Leviticus 12:5; Leviticus 15:19ff answers to the Hebrew נִדָּה sordes menstruorum. Cf. Fischer's full discussion of the word in his De vitiis lexx. N. T., p. 698ff
