    has provided images which can be used both scientifically and archaeologically revealing numerous internal gear trains which are invisible to the naked eye toothed wheels and new inscriptions hidden under the concretions less than a quarter of the ancient Greek lettering of this text engraved on the machine has successfully been deciphered but it is believed to be a sort of user guide for the mechanical calculator also thought to show the movement of some major planets The gears were driven by what is believed to be a side handwheel but the possibility of an auxiliary hydraulic system has not been ruled out On the trail of the great Archimedes It is now accepted that this machine could have been designed in Rhodes home to a community of astronomers including Hipparchus as well as mechanical engineers such as Posidonios A new hypothesis has been put forward this machine could be closely linked to Syracuse in Sicily the city of the famous mathematical genius Archimedes then a prosperous Corinthian colony or even with the city state of Corinth itself The Antikythera mechanism could have been designed there decades before the shipwreck which subsequently gave the large island its name According to current knowledge and based on the inscriptions which have been deciphered the Antikythera mechanism could show the different cycles of the sun the moon and in all likelihood the planets relating these to the civil calendars of a Greek city Corinth or one of its colonies and showing the dates of the most prestigious games of the ancient world The study of the Antikythera mechanism only very recently begun is far from being finished but it has given rise to a great wave of reinterpretation and reassessment of our knowledge of Antiquity The reality of the mechanical knowledge held by these Greek scholars is a fantastic field to explore It may even be that a record is found in the texts or in the hidden reserves of museums of other machines like the Antikythera mechanism Mechanical gear trains which express a mathematical vision of the cosmos The Antikythera mechanism is not a clock capable of showing the time ancient civilisations did not experience time as we do A genuine cosmograph a machine to describe the cosmos and also a selenograph a machine to describe the complex movements of the Moon the Antikythera mechanism was highly accurate and could show multiple astronomical cycles including the Metonic cycle named after the Greek astronomer Meton it runs for 19 years equal to 235 lunar months or the Callippic cycle named after the Greek astronomer Callippus it runs for 76 years equal to 940 lunar months of four Metonic cycles The Antikythera mechanism also showed the Saros cycle 223 lunar months covering just over 18 years as well as the Exeligmos cycle equivalent to three Saros cycles or 54 years which served especially to predict possible eclipses The volume of astronomical data compiled to create a mathematical model able to summarise such cycles using
