Whelp...

At the end of the day, it's math and gears. It's not TERRIBLY complicated. Intricate? Sure. Out of reach for the time period? Not really.

Frankly, the Piri reis(sp?) maps I find more interesting.

So why no comparable objects for 1000 years?

Piri Reis is truly interesting.. However i have no doubt that sea faring forefathers mapped much of the world before Columbus! Therefore maps of Antartic coastline is expected... The fact it matches what is under the ice is astounding! More ancient knowledge lost!

I really don't know that there wasn't similar objects during the 1000 years, only that we haven't found them. I tend to think that intricate objects like that were gathered and spirited away to places unknown, like Vatican vaults and Palace treasuries.

That's what I find odd.. Because if they were spirited away.. Surely at least one other similar object would have been uncovered by now.. Or at least written about somewhere... But nothing for a thousand years!

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).
 Quoting: Ostria1


No. it was Archimedes the premiere inventor of the ancient world. The Antikythera device uses calendrics used in Sicily. That doesn't jibe with calendar used on Rhodes.

It is believed that arabs might have kept the technology of using differential gears going before introducing it back to Europe via Spain,

Good story! That device has always fascinated me! I'm not so sure they can really judge what it was used for with certainty.

Nice find! ****PIN hf
