📎 Tower of The Winds: The World’s First Weather Station

…the Horologion of Andronikos Kyrrhestes is an elegant octagonal marble tower in the Roman Agora in Athens. More than 2,000 years old, the tower has eight sides corresponding to the eight principle winds, a sundial to tell time, a wind vane to show the direction of wind and an interior water clock that in antiquity could be read even in darkness.
