Does This Ancient Greek Sculpture Show A Woman Using A Laptop And So Prove Time Travel?

Little known fact. Time travel is definitely real and back in ancient Greece around 200BC laptops were all the rage with the nobility, never a day went by without people logging onto their computers and probably checking out their newsfeeds on whatever their version of Facebook was called.

It's all true, honest. Well, as true as you want it to be if you believe everything that you see on the internet and have total faith in the growing number of conspiracy theorists that make compelling videos like the one above.

An Ancient Greek sculpture known as Grave Naiskos of an Enthroned Woman with an Attendant has ignited some conspiracy nuts. In a video, which was actually posted back in 2014, YouTubers StillSpeakingOut detail how the the statue could be a laptop with USB ports.

Oh yes. "I am not saying that this is depicting an ancient laptop computer," the video says. "But when I look at the sculpture I can’t help but think about the Oracle of Delphi, which was supposed to allow the priests to connect with the gods to retrieve advanced information and various aspects."

It goes on to say, "‘I can’t help but think that Erich von Däniken had been right all this time and that most of these myths of magical artifacts given by the gods to a very restricted group of individuals in ancient civilizations were high-tech devices similar to what we have today."

While historians in the description for the sculpture that's on display at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Malibu, California call it a "shallow chest held by a servant girl on this funerary" conspiracy theorists suggest otherwise.

They say it's proof that time travellers visited the Ancient Greeks and gave them laptops and says it's too shallow for a jewelry box.

But people refute that by saying if it isn't a case for jewelry it's probably a wax tablet, a wax-coated object that the Greeks wrote on with a stylus or pen (see below).

"But what about the port holes?" cry the conspiracy theorists. Well, maybe they're just holes that were made to affix something?

What do you think, is this proof of time travel or just a chest with some holes in? I think we all know the right answer.
