Ancient Clock

Tower of the Winds

In the Roman Agora of Athens, just below the Acropolis is an Ancient BCE Water Clock and Sundial called The Tower of the Winds.  The 8 sided monument is made out of marble and was truly an ingenious construction that included a compass, weather vane, sundial and water clock.
