The Cosmos in the Antikythera Mechanism
Tony Freeth and Alexander Jones

Scientific data produced by Hewlett-Packard Inc. This shows Polynomial Texture Mapping (PTM) with specular enhancement of the three main fragments of the Antikythera Mechanism, Fragment A (top row), Fragment B (bottom left) and Fragment C (bottom right). PTMs enhance surface details, revealing text and features that are difficult to read from photographs. 82 fragments survive, which are probably all from the Mechanism.

The "Antikythera Mechanism" Exhibitions

List of countries and cities that hosted "Antikythera Mechanism within the Astronomy and Technology of its Time" exhibitions. In some cases, the exhibitions are adapted in order to include objects from local collections, within a wider thematic about time and astronomy. Most of these exhibitions were funded by the Hephaestus Project (FP7 - Capacities, Regpot-2008-1).
The original fragments of the Antikythera Mechanism are on display at the National Archaeological Museum in Athens, Greece.
