Hours Description Ruling Planet Hours of Morning The ancients supposed each of the hours to be governed by a separate planet. First hour Represented as a young girl, her head adorned with light flowing hair; she is clad in a short dress of rose-colour, resembling the tints of the clouds before the
rising of the sun ; her wings are like those of a butterfly, and she holds the Sun and a bunch of full-blown roses . Sun Second hour Appears to have wings like the preceding; her hair is of a darker hue, and her dress of a deep gold colour; she is surrounded by light clouds, indicating the vapours

which the sun exhales from the earth; her attributes are the planet Venus and a sunflower.

Venus Third hour Her hair is brown, and her drapery is white, shaded with red; she holds the planet Mercury and a sun-dial. Mercury Fourth hour Considered to be time best calculated for gathering herbs, as the heat of the sun had by then dissipated the clouds, and sufficiently dried the earth; its

personification was therefore clothed entirely in white, and bore a hyacinth and the figure of the Moon.

Moon Fifth hour Her robe was tinged with lemon colour, denoting the golden brightness of the sun as it advances towards the meridian; in her hand was the planet Saturn Saturn Sixth hour Turns her face to the beholder, and as the sun has now attained its greatest power, her dress is red and flaming; her accompaniments are the planet Jupiter and a

lotus, which, like the sunflower, follows the course of the sun.

First hour Her robe is of the hue of the horizon during twilight; she bears in her hands the planet Jupiter and a bat. Jupiter Second hour Habited in dark gray, and holds the planet Mars and a screech owl. Mars Third hour Clad in black, carries an owl and the Sun.
