Tho Romans did not cot tho first water-1

But, thouch tho hours of tbo clopiydrao

one; when tbo clock with ui strikes
twolvc, thn ancients counted six, aud so
forth. This method of counting tno hour
was, according to the New Testament, also
customary! in Palcstldo at tho time of
Christ. The water-clocks had that ad
vantage, that they could bo used in the
night ; and tbo Romans used them to
dlvldo their nlgbt watches, which wero re
