ANTIKYTHERA shipwreck yields more SECRETS!
Antikythera shipwreck reveals more secrets!

Marine archaeologists report they have uncovered new secrets of an ancient Roman shipwreck famed for yielding an amazingly sophisticated astronomical calculator. An international survey team says the ship is twice as long as originally thought and contains many more calcified objects amid the ship's lost cargo that hint at new discoveries.

The wreck is best known for yielding a bronze astronomical calculator, the "Antikythera Mechanism" widely seen as the most complex device known from antiquity, along with dozens of marble and bronze statues. The mechanism apparently used 37 gear wheels, a technology reinvented a millennium later, to create a lunar calendar and predict the motion of the planets.

Great news! I wonder what else is hidden in there!

Exactly.
The "Antikythera Mechanism" is so complex that there must be many 'simpler' models preceding this device in the decades and even centuries before the making of the "Antikythera Mechanism".

Where are they? Suppressed/hidden away or simply destroyed, either by time, ignorant people or archeologists?

I think its builder must be Posidonius of Rhodes, the timeline matches. Poseidonius had already built a planetarium according to Cicero and he had formed a school in Rhodes. (and Hipparchus probably died there a few years ago and he is said to have invented the astrolabe).

Re: ANTIKYTHERA shipwreck yields more SECRETS!
The Antikythera mechanism is an ancient analog computer designed to calculate astronomical positions. It was recovered in 1900–1901 from the Antikythera wreck, but its significance and complexity were not understood until a century later. Jacques Cousteau visited the wreck in 1978 but, although he found new dating evidence, he did not find any additional remains of the Antikythera mechanism. The construction has been dated to the early 1st century BC. Technological artifacts approaching its complexity and workmanship did not appear again until the 14th century AD, when mechanical astronomical clocks began to be built in Western Europe.

Professor Michael Edmunds of Cardiff University, who led a 2006 study of the mechanism, said:

This device is just extraordinary, the only thing of its kind. The design is beautiful, the astronomy is exactly right. The way the mechanics are designed just makes your jaw drop. Whoever has done this has done it extremely carefully ... in terms of historic and scarcity value, I have to regard this mechanism as being more valuable than the Mona Lisa.
