sundial

ὡρολόγιον πράξεις καὶ ὁρμὰς καὶ κινήσεις και ἐπιβολὰς χρειῶν σημαίνει·

πάντα γὰρ πρὸς τὰς ὥρας ἀποβλέποντες οἱ ἄνθρωποι πράσσουσιν.

 

A sundial signifies deeds, efforts, movements and undertakings of matters.

For when people are doing anything they keep an eye on the time.

 

(Artemidorus, Interpretation of Dreams 3.66)

 

circa 1680 glass in Lullingstone church.
