The measure of time passing
Before the invention of the mechanical clock, two kinds of instruments were used to measure time. On the one hand, hourglasses and water clocks, were used to count the passage of time, the time that is ‘running’. On the other, gnomons and sundials give this hour, the hour of the stars.
