The Antikythera mechanism is believed to be an ancient mechanical analog computer. Only it for millennia ahead of its time.
The mechanism was housed in a wooden box approximately 340 x 180 x 90 mm in size.
Antikythera Mechanism—named after the southern Greek island off which it was found.

After more than a decade’s efforts using cutting-edge scanning equipment, an international team of scientists has now read about 3,500 characters of explanatory text—a quarter of the original—in the innards of the 2,100-year-old remains.
They say it was a kind of philosopher’s guide to the galaxy, and perhaps the world’s oldest mechanical computer.
“Now we have texts that you can actually read as ancient Greek, what we had before was like something on the radio with a lot of static,” said team member Alexander Jones, a professor of the history of ancient science at New York University.
“It’s a lot of detail for us because it comes from a period from which we know very little about Greek astronomy and essentially nothing about the technology, except what we gather from here,” he said. “So these very small texts are a very big thing for us.”

For me it is not a philosophical casket for predictions or even the clock calendar.
For the production of such technology industry needs, at the level of 17 to 18 century AD, when the production of these mechanisms has become possible.
So if no one moved from the future with this mechanism, whereas in Greece and in the world, was not sufficiently advanced civilizations.
Video little about the other findings where the mechanism was found.
The Antikythera Shipwreck is the largest ancient shipwreck ever discovered, possibly a massive grain carrier. It was discovered and salvaged in 1900 by Greek sponge divers. In addition to dozens of marble statues and thousands of antiquities, their efforts produced the Antikythera Mechanism — an astounding artifact known as the world’s first computer. In 1976, Jacques-Yves Cousteau and the CALYPSO crew returned to the wreck and recovered nearly 300 more objects, including skeletal remains of the passengers and crew.
Now, do not determine for what this mechanism was created.
It is important, by whom, and for whom it was created, most likely mechanism is transmitted to humans by aliens, for a particular purpose.
