Description:
  • A 12 inch diameter (perhaps bronze) horizontal dial with hour lines and half-hour marks and Roman hour numerals. Inscription area is heavily corroded. Dial rests on a mortared marble stone pedestal.

    This may be a commercial stock dial and the design may be flawed as the gnomon root appears to be north of the 6 AM - 6 PM line.
