The Antikythera Mechanism, described as "the world's first analogue computer" was created 2,000 years ago and discovered in 1901 in a shipwreck off the Greek island of the same name.

 is an ancient hand-powered Greek analogue computer which has also been described as the first example of such device used to predict

astronomical positions and eclipses for

calendar and astrological purposes decades in advance.  It could also be used to track the four-year cycle of athletic games which was similar to an Olympiad , the cycle of the

ancient Olympic Games . 

This artefact was retrieved from the sea in 1901, and identified on 17 May 1902 as containing a gear by archaeologist Valerios Stais , among wreckage retrieved from a

shipwreck off the coast of the Greek island Antikythera . The instrument is believed to have been designed and constructed by Greek scientists and has been variously dated to about 87 BC, or between 150 and 100 BC, or to 205 BC, 

or to within a generation before the shipwreck, which has been dated to approximately 70–60 BC. 

Who knows in the time of Jesus this form of technology has be produced.
