Notes This object was presented as a "triple" sundial by Borchardt (1920), incorporating elements of L-shaped, sloping, and "stepped" sundials, the latter being only represented by this object. Subsequent authors can be been divided into to those who accept Borchardt's interpretation (examples Sloley (1931) and Clagett (1995)) and those who do not (Berg (1990) and the present authors). The alternative is that the object is an architectural element, either a model or the base for a small statue.
