Geocache Description:

Eight wind gods take care of this cache. They live in a clock tower at the center of Athens.





The tower of the winds is one of the most ingenious creations of ancient architecture, featuring a number of unusual technical gadgets:

  • the eight outer walls exhibit sundials
  • the interior contained a water clock
  • the roof bore a wind vane
  • Each of the eight gods occupies a wall facing a different point of the compass
The wind gods are busy showing the wind direction, but they may help you find the cache, hidden at:

N xx xx.(Notus+Zephyrus), E xx xx.(Apeliotes+Lips+Skiron+3)

You can check your answers for this puzzle on GeoChecker.com.
