MCMXCIX

The sundial facing the Plaça Nova in Sant Llorenç des Cardassar belongs to the Vicario (vicarage) building. I guess that it was designed sometime around 1895 to 1905. The inscription gives the year 1999, though, in Roman numerals: MCMXCIX. One could argue that 1999 could also be written as MIM but, that would not be coherent with the numeral system of ancient Rome. The year 1999 refers to the date of a restoration of the original design. It would appear that not a very good job was done by the restorers as some of the colour of the outer ring is coming off already after barely 12 years.

The photo was taken in Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: May 8th, 2011. The time was 13:38:15.
