ATHENS -- The technological inventions of the ancient Greeks unfold interactively while touring the permanent collection of the Kotsanas Museum "Ancient Greece – the origins of our technologies".

"Heron, Philon, Archimedes, Ktesibios, Pythagoras and Hipparchos invite you to discover the cutting edge technology of antiquity through their inventions. From the automatic hydraulic clock of Ktesibios to the Antikythera Calculating Mechanism, we observe that the foundations for many conquests of modern civilization, such as steam and gas propulsion, the computer and robotic constructions, had already been laid by the ancient Greek world. Philon’s automatic servant and magic wine jug, Archimedes’ hydraulic screw and so much more, come to illuminate unknown aspects of everyday life in public and private life," according to the museum.
