Some people are saying a laptop can be seen in ancient Greek artifact
Is a laptop depicted in a carved-out gravestone from ancient Greece?
Some have raised the possibility that it is, indeed, a computer from the future.
The artifact in question is a 2,100-year-old funerary piece at the J. Paul Getty Museum which shows a woman looking at a flat object held open by her servant.
One line of thinking referenced by conspiracy theorists is that, during ancient times, gods bestowed advanced tools on to special members of society.
However, experts, not surprisingly, disagree with a supernatural assessment. One bioarchaeologist on Forbes.com has argued that the object could simply be a jewelry box or wax tablet, and the holes on the side aren't USB ports as claimed but perhaps indicators of components that are now missing.
The museum itself has stated that the item is a shallow chest.
