Antikythera mechanism

The Antikythera mechanism

A shipwreck 
More than Thousand years ago

A ship that sinked 
Along the Antikytheran coast

Discoverd thousands of years 
Later

Aboard an engine 
A machine 
Of such complexity 
Unknown

The mechanics of time
Schematic of Antikythera mechanism

Schematic of Antikythera mechanism

"Said" to be invented by Archimedes
A great Greek scientist
Originator of many
inspired by the wise from Egypt...

Antikythera mechanism

What is the exact time
Tell me?

Nobody knows...
And yet
Time ticks with the precision
Of a cosmic clock

Time for a watch
in real time
no?
