On a Water-clock

Texts

ἐνθάδε μιστύλλουσι δρόμον Φαεθοντίδος αἴγλης
ἀνέρες ὡράων ἀμφὶ δυωδεκάδι:
ὕδασι δ᾽ ἠελίοιο ταλαντεύουσι κελεύθους,
ἐς πόλον ἐκ γαίης μῆτιν ἐρεισάμενοι.

— Paton edition

Here men divide the course of bright Phaethon
into twelve hours and measure the sun's path
by water, lifting up their minds from earth to
heaven.
