Murex Trunculus
HEXAPLEX TRUNCULUS (also known as MUREX TRUNCULUS, PHYLLONOTUS TRUNCULUS, or the BANDED DYE-MUREX) is a medium-sized species of sea snail , a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Muricidae , the murex shells or rock snails. This species is known in the fossil record from the Pliocene to the Quaternary period (age range: from 3.6 to 0.012 million years ago). Fossil shells within this genus have been found in Morocco, Italy, and Spain. This species of sea snail is important historically because its hypobranchial gland secretes a mucus that most ancient peoples of the mediterranean from the Minoans to the ancient Canaanites /Phoenicians and classical Greeks used as a distinctive PURPLE-BLUE indigo dye . One of the dye's main chemical ingredients is dibromo-indigotin , and if left in the sun for a few minutes before becoming fast, its color turns to a BLUE indigo (like the dye used in blue jeans)

This work provides crucial information for making links between classical literature and modern archaeology . Andrew Stewart assesses him as: A careful, pedestrian writer...interested not only in the grandiose or the exquisite but in unusual sights and obscure ritual. He is occasionally careless or makes unwarranted inferences, and his guides or even his own notes sometimes mislead him, yet his honesty is unquestionable, and his value without par

Daylight Saving Time
DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME (abbreviated DST), commonly referred to as DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME in speech, and known as SUMMER TIME in some countries, is the practice of advancing clocks during summer months so that evening daylight lasts longer, while sacrificing normal sunrise times. Typically, regions that use daylight saving time adjust clocks forward one hour close to the start of spring and adjust them backward in the autumn to standard time. George Hudson proposed the idea of daylight saving in 1895. The German Empire
German Empire
and Austria-Hungary
Austria-Hungary
organized the first nationwide implementation, starting on April 30, 1916. Many countries have used it at various times since then, particularly since the energy crisis of the 1970s . DST is generally not observed near the equator, where sunrise times do not vary enough to justify it
