Hōrologium sundial, water / sand clock hourglass • temporī Dative Singular of
tempus time, period, age (grammar - tense) • advēnit adveniō arrive
I was wondering why tempori (dative) is used here. Anybody any idea?
I think it's not the dative, but only an adverb that has the same form that a dative.
Maybe it's derivated from the dative (to the time?), maybe not. But it's not the dative anymore, it's a fixed invariable form, as all the adverbs.
I have no idea what this sentence could mean, except if some couriers carries a package with a clock, and deliver it to a customer at the right delivery hour.
