# An enigmatic rebus - Clue Twenty Five

<<---First clue
<---Previous clue

You head through the door. Immediately, you are blinded by a sudden burst of light. You stand in the doorway, blinking, as the door closes and pushes you into the room. As your eyes adjust, you see that there are four bright lights in front of you, shaped like the sun. You look closer...

• So, we have four 'suns' (or maybe sons) and 18 rays emanating out of each... interesting, indeed. Jan 16, 2017 at 7:15

Given the mouseover text,

It's not clear if that's supposed to be us talking to ourselves thinking through what to do with four sun pictures, or if we're reading something we see when we examine more closely, or what. My best guess, after OP points out in a comment that Solis is shortened to Sol, is that we're supposed to read the mouseover text as our own musings, though what inspires them is completely unclear.

Given that, ...
Sol x four — latin Sun (shortened) x 4
Sol x fur — remove the 'o'?
Sul x fur — turn the 'o' into a 'u'?

looks an awful lot like
Sulfur or Sulphur

which seems to be in keeping with the other puzzles in the series which have all been alchemical looking substances, spices, or elements.

• Sol is actually the base (nominative) form for Sun in Latin. Solis is the genitive form. Jan 16, 2017 at 9:15
• @Volatility My knowledge of Latin extends to what Google Translate tells me :) I was going off OP's comment, but thanks for clarifying with additional support for using Sol here.

• Correct! The puzzle is enigmatic for a reason :P Jan 16, 2017 at 9:20
• @Mithrandir I clearly missed the rebus tag, this old age has got me! Jan 16, 2017 at 10:27

This might probably be off track but is the answer related to?

Roman Baths
with each Sun depicting the four features : the Sacred Spring, the Roman Temple, the Roman Bath House and the Museum.

Why ?

The image description says "Latin? Remove the 'o'? Aren't you supposed to turn the 'o' into a 'u'? I'm confused"
So, in Latin sun is Solis.
If we do not remove the 'o' but turn it into 'u', we get Sulis, the goddess who fed spa at baths. She is displayed at Roman baths, so that seems a plausible answer!? p.s. am still unsure.

• In some places note that Solis is cut down to Sol... Jan 16, 2017 at 7:45
• @Mithrandir Aah, yes. that's something... Jan 16, 2017 at 8:00
