The Antikythera Mechanism, a unique finding of the first century. B.C., found on the seabed of the Antikythera 1901 and thereafter employs the scientific community with the technical knowledge and skills, and the wealth of scientific information includes.

It is the oldest complex mechanism gear has been rescued, constituting essentially an astronomical calendar and analog computer, designed to predict astronomical phenomena and maintain perennial accurate calendar.

The small size of the device, detailed gearing, and the differential epicyclic gears, and the pin-slot system show that Greek Hellenistic engineers had much more leeway in designing mechanisms with gear wheels than that attested in written sources.
