The Tower of the Winds is an octagonal Pentelic marble clocktower in the Roman Agora in Athens that functioned as a horologion or "timepiece". The structure features a combination of sundials, a water clock, and a wind vane. It was supposedly built by Andronicus of Cyrrhus around 50 BC, but according to other sources, might have been constructed in the 2nd century BC before the rest of the forum.

Γεια σου Βασίλη
Έκανε καλή δουλειά ο ευρυγώνιος. Πολύ καλή και η επιλογή του b/w.
Καλή συνέχεια και καλό βράδυ
