Hōrologium sundial, water, sand clock • temporī Dative Singular of tempus time, period, age (grammar - tense) • advēnit adveniō arrive
What is the meaning of this sentence, of the possible meanings? Saved by the bell? Or someone ordered a clock via Amazon?
More like an Ancient Roman Amazon/Ebay
service, something like the Cursus publicus:
It is not clear to me the use of dative as a complement of time. Anyone could help me?
This is an adverb temporī (also temporē or temperī) rather than the dative case, according to Lewis & Short.
A good clock is never late
...nor is he early. He arrives precisely when he means to. (Peter Jackson)
