Chimneys are also mentioned in JC and I do believe somewhere near the
end of The Winter's Tale that eye-glasses are mentioned. I'm sure others
will have more specific answers, and I'm sure that there are more
anachronisms than these.

An additional anachronism in JC is Brutus' dogearing ("I will turn down
the page") of what he's reading in the tent at Sardis.

I remember discovering many as I have read, but that's all I can come up
with at the moment.

There are many in Shakespeare, I think. Aside from Hermia's NUNNERY and
JC's clock. Would the CLOWN (I wish you all the joy of the worm) in A&C
(which I just saw in NYC) be considered an anachronism?----chris s.

Hector cites Aristotle on young men's unfitness for moral philosophy in
*Troilus* 2.2.166-8.

Another obvious anachronism is Richard, Duke of Gloucester's reference
to Machiavelli in 3 H6: "I can add colors to the chameleon,/ Change
shapes with Proteus for advantages,/ And set the murtherous Machevil to
school." (3:ii:191-3).

Imogen reading a book in bed in Roman Britain is the most obvious
anachronism I can think of off-hand but all of the history and Roman
plays are loaded with historical mistakes.
