I find it strange that Sundials differ often from clock faces in they sometimes use a roman numeral of IV for 4 o clock but clocks with roman numbers generally use IIII (Quiz question often). :D

Well, well I didn't know that! If it comes up in our next pub quiz I will make sure you get a credit. That's a name check by the way - not a pint in for you, unless you are ever in Dorset. R-
Not sure if I have plenty of time on my hands - or I’ve simply forgotten to do something really important.

Something to do with one of our Kings apparently. He designed a clock face and used IIII instead of IV and of course nobody could tell him he was wrong.

That could well be a load of rubbish.

This is an interesting read on the use of IIII rather than IV on a clock face Well, I thought so. R-

I must have gazed up at the clock faces that hide Big Ben a hundred times and have never noticed is says IV and not IIII.
