This bizarre photo has paranormal investigators CONVINCED time travel has already happened
The ancient Greek funerary relief sculpture from about 100BC, shows a young attendant girl holding an object that appears to be open at a right angle for a distinguished looking woman to view.
It is kept in the J Paul Getty Museum, in Malibu, California, USA, where experts describe the object as a shallow chest.
But after people began posting snaps of the sculpture on social media, claims came thick and fast that the object was a modern-day laptop, somehow transported back to ancient Greece from the future.
YouTube conspiracy theory channel StillSpeakingOut uploaded a video on the sculpture entitled ‘Ancient Greek sculpture depicting a laptop?’
The video narration said the sculpture: "depicts an astonishing object which bears a striking resemblance with a modern laptop or some hand-held device.
"In another picture taken by a random tourist from a better angle we can see that the object is wide with a structure too narrow to be a jewel box and it does not match the depictions of the mythical Pandora's Box.
"I am not saying that this relief is depicting an ancient laptop computer, but when I look at the sculpture and think about Greek tales about the Oracle of Delphe, which was supposed to allow the priests to connect with the gods and retrieve advanced information of various aspects, I can't help but thinking that Erich von Däniken has been right all this time and that most of these myths of magical artefacts given by the gods to a very restricted group of individuals in ancient civilisations were high-tech devices similar to what we have today."
Mr von Däniken is a Swiss author of several pseudoscientific books which claim early civilisations were visited and aided by advanced aliens from another dimension which helped them build such amazing buildings such as the Egyptian pyramids.
Conspiracists insist the object in the sculpture is too think to be a wax tablet - a folding wooden device coated in wax, with which a stylus was used to write on.
