This is the thirtieth puzzle you will encounter in the UK version of Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must examine the monument. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine the date that Dropstone was founded by thinking of how the incorrect date can be displayed as the correct one.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    The puzzle text tells you that the sculptor engraved the wrong date into the stone, so you know that 12-8 isn't the date Dropstone was founded.

Hint Two
    Does the sculpture's shape give you a clue into what it could have been converted?

    That big bowl and the opening at the top should indicate that this sculpture is now a fountain.

Hint Three
    Though currently dry, the fountain's big bowl is usually filled with water.

    Why don't you take a moment to...reflect on this?

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Think hard about the puzzle and try again.

[edit] When Completed


When converted into a fountain, water fills the bowl, allowing the true date of Dropstone's founding, 13-8, to be displayed.

The inattentive sculptor must have been relieved at getting away with such sloppy chiselling.

[edit] Solution


Dropstone's founding date is 13-8.

[edit] Progress

795 Picarats and 59 Hint Coins.
