Chinese Hour Marking

Page 14 of The Celestial Empire lists the Chinese "large hours" in their order. However, I forgot to indicate their Chinese name. Here they are:

  • 11pm to 1am: the hour of the Rat (子  zǐ)
  • 1am to 3am: the hour of the Ox (丑 chǒu)
  • 3am to 5am: the hour of the Tiger (寅 yín)
  • 5am to 7am: the hour of the Rabbit (卯 mǎo)
  • 7am to 9am: the hour of the Dragon (辰 chén)
  • 9am to 11am: the hour of the Snake (巳 sì)
  • 11am to 1pm: the hour of the Horse (午 wǔ)
  • 1pm to 3pm: the hour of the Goat (未 wèi)
  • 3pm to 5pm: the hour of the Monkey (申 shēn)
  • 5pm to 7pm: the hour of the Rooster (酉 yǒu)
  • 7pm to 9pm: the hour of the Dog (戌 xū)
  • 9pm to 11pm: the hour of the Pig (亥 hài)
