The concave sundials found in ancient Egypt from the Greco-Roman period onwards are all of the types we see elsewhere in the Greco-Roman world. They are not, in the strictest sense "ancient Egyptian", but are included here for completeness. They include two objects found outside the boundaries of modern Egypt.

Within this category, there are two basic types of sundial, conical or spherical, depending on the shape of the shadow-catching surface. Conical dials are much better represented in the archaeological record as it currently stands.
