If we trace the tarot back to its roots, however, we find a somewhat different intention behind this card. The title given to the card in Italy in the 14th and 15th centuries varied between three alternatives: The Hunchback (il Gobbo), the Old Man (il Vecchio) and Time (il Tempo). All were about equally common and equally early, so there is no reason to give one clear priority over the others. Rather than carrying a lantern, he typically carries an hourglass. He is, in fact, the familiar "Father Time"...
