when humans first used clear time divisions of day
can anyone tell me when humans first used clear time divisions of day, night,
I do not mean terms like sun up or sun down, i mean artifical divisions.

At the other end we have the Babylonians around -2500 who counted daytime hours but not nightime ones, implying they made the distinction.
Somewhere in between people decided to count days and nights separately.
