vodeni sat [ muški rod ]

Drevni narodi Haldejci i Vavilonci merili su vreme pomoću sata "na vodu". Koristili su uspravnu posudu kroz čije je suženo dno isticala voda u drugi sud. Na osnovu iscrtanih linija po obodu suda tačno se znalo koliko je vode isteklo, odnosno koliko je proteklo vremena. Pošto se voda mogla zamrznuti, zamenjena je peskom.
