M.R. - Westlake, OH
(Footnote: A mother ordered a sundial to give to a family that would be visiting from the Republic of San Marino over Christmas. She told her children that she loved the sundial so much she was tempted to keep it for herself. So the kids ordered a second one (like you see above) - this one calibrated for Mom's backyard in Avon, OH.)

Footnote: This sundial was created by a group of Classics professors at the University of Arizona for the retirement of a dear friend. The translation of the inscription is:"I have been given by the sun and his devils." (Ancient inscriptions in stone often refer to themselves (and the stone) in the first person, and address the viewer this way. We also thought that this was both a clever sundial reference (given by the sun) and a nice nod to the Sun Devils which are the ASU mascot
