To the left of the steps of the Temple of Apollo is an Ionic column, on top of which sets a sundial made of white marble. (It really works.) Those who paid for this column and sundial wanted to assure that Apollo or his worshipers (or both) never forgot at whose expense it was constructed. Carved as part of the upper column, a plaque preserves in Latin the names of the philanthropists, L. Sepunius and M. Herennius.
