    Recent studies have given us some new facts regarding the Pantheon. It was designed as a huge sundial. The structure was precisely oriented to allow the oculus, which provides the only light source in the building, to cast a single sunbeam that marked the daily arrival of noon and illuminated the doorway on special occasions, especially on the equinoxes and April 21, the traditional anniversary of Rome’s founding by Romulus.
