Scaphe dial. A circular dial and a compass fold into the brass body of this dumbbell-shaped dial. The body has a carrying ring attached to the upper surface. Both the upper and lower surfaces are decorated with leaf patterns and a border of triangles, and the two instrument parts are milled around the edges. This dial provides a conveniently small, portable instrument, since the compass and scaphe dial can be stored within the body of the instrument.
