The Egeriac clock is a traditional timekeeping system used among Egeriac people in Notzel. It counts twenty-four hours in a day, but it first divided the day into the daytime and night-time, then divide the daytime and the night-time into 2 sub-sections each. and then the subsections are divided into 6 hours each.

The start of a day is the start of kelen komos.

The system has been used for centuries and was first codified in the 4th century, and is still widely used.
