Gnomon was one of the Philosophers of Ephebe mentioned in Small Gods. His magnum opus was Ectopia.


On Roundworld, the gnomon is the part of a sundial that casts the shadow. More pertinent for this Gnomon is that his name comes from γνώμων - an ancient Greek word meaning "indicator", "one who discerns," or "that which reveals."
