Next was Numerivs Cilo From Hispania Tarraconensis aged 53. He did nothing of consequence, though 20 years into his rule an ADA in Germania Superior developed the first mechanical timepiece, called a cloca, based on the slow unwinding of springs; the face’s upper hemisphere was devoted to day hours, and the bottom hemisphere for night hours. This set up regarding day and night hours proved unreliable since the day varies noticeably throughout the year in most provinces, so many thought at first that mechanical timepieces were a needless waste of effort to maintain. The cloca however had the advantage over sundials of not requiring a sun, to face north, or even it to be daytime; as well as better than water clocks with needing only a winding key to keep them running, they also were partially portable while still telling the time. It could make time more standardized and many scholars went to Cilo, advising the usefulness of installing them empire wide. Now in his late 70’s, Cilo was weary of the heftily large timepieces and found them useless if they were not part of every city and town, and each was kept wound up, and there were mechanators residing in those cities to maintain the cloca’s integrity, and everyone learned how to read one. The ADA would continue work. The cloca at the time lost up to 2 hours a day. Cilo died at 81 in 1361(608).



Quintvs Pompeivs from Scicilia was appointed Caesar at 50. He was not specifically enthused by the cloca but allowed the ADAs to have their time keeping based upon them since they liked them so much. When this was done, it was also found true that even though the cloca were perfectly keeping time (corrected for their losing around 1hr, 45 minutes a day), as they were transported across the empire with the same time, when they arrived at their stations it was found that the local time did not coincide with any of the clocai which travelled east or west a great distance, yet when compared to the sundials and water clocks, they would still keep time, just farther behind in the west and ahead in the east. Later on, the only plausible explanation was that throughout the world time ran at the same rate but from a different starting time. Furthering this, the only explanation was that the sun did not pass over the world at the same angle everywhere. Did this mean the sun was so small and near it shadows were cast differently everywhere? Many scholars would attempt the calculations and perform experiments. The highest flying Alesalitis reported that as one approached the sun, it actually became cooler the higher they flew, and also the sun’ size never changed, using the scholars angles for a near sun and the flat ground, the sun would have to be much closer than would be reasonably possible. It was therefore, 80 years later (not that Pompeivs lived that long) that it was finally accepted in the scientific community that the world was a sphere, no getting around it, Aristotle and Eratosthenes’ theories about the circumference of Terra were proved unmistakably right.

1410(657) In the barbarian parts of the Arabian peninsula, a prophet named Al-Amin founded an influential monotheistic religion called Islanastrianism. Its inspiration came mostly from Zoroastrianism and Hebrew traditions. A charismatic and megalomaniacal figure, he whipped up massive Arab armies, uniting the majority of the peninsula and converting most of its peoples. His powerful forces however were curbed by Rome in a series of short wars lasting until his death in 1432(679). Although he demanded his successors continue the war against the pagan empire, he never actually made a definite choice, causing his followers to fight amongst themselves until the Mossalnan Cilaf collapsed and their main leaders died of old age. The religion itself was not lost however, it expanded rather peacefully (though in a fractured state and in fad fashion) around the near east; though Ægyptian, Greek, and Roman gods held sway beyond the region's coast of the Mare Imbrium. The Islan that stayed in the peninsula and reached eastern Africa would mix with various Ægyptian based cults, changing as the decades passed. The Islan that entered Parthia would become heavily influenced by Roman and Indian religion-traditions.
