This method of keeping "star" time might point to the Sothic calendar, a wide-spread Egyptian method of keeping time by tracking the star Sirius instead of the sun. The identical shield pictographs, also on side 1, (left) when connected with lines reveal a pentagram inside a heptagon, perhaps the star Sirius surrounded by the seven planets. This might strongly indicate the Minoan use of a Sothic calendar.
In the Cretan tales incorporated into Greek mythology, Talos (pronounced /ˈteɪlɒs/; Greek: Τάλως, Talōs) or Talon (/ˈteɪlən/; Greek: Τάλων, Talōn) was a giant man of bronze who protected Europa in Crete from pirates and invaders by circling the island's shores three times daily while guarding it.
The world’s oldest astronomical calculator is famous for having intricate gear systems centuries ahead of their time. But new work shows the Antikythera mechanism used pure geometry, as well as flashy gears to track celestial bodies’ motion through the heavens.
The device, a 2,000-year-old assemblage of gears and wheels that matched 19th century clocks in precision and complexity, was salvaged from a shipwreck off the Greek island of Antikythera in 1901.

Very interesting find Slayer. Its all true that we are still missing a big piece to the puzzle of what happened during ancient times. We all can safely say that many Ancient civilizations were probably wiped out by the great natural disasters and the rising of the sea level that caused many cities to be submerged underwater.

These are the same people non-believers make fun of for believing in God and riding camels in the desert; yes that is right they possessed computer technology.

I'm pretty sure that as time goes on they will find more not necessarily King Tuts I-pod or the ancients DVD/Blue-ray collection but that in fact Ancient man had it going a lot more than we give them credit for.

Researcher cites ancient Minoan-era 'computer'
"While searching in the Archaeological Museum of Iraklion for Minoan Age findings with astronomical images on them we came across a stone-made matrix unearthed in the region of Paleokastro, Sitia. In the past, archaeologists had expressed the view that the carved symbols on its surface are related with the Sun and the Moon," Tsikritsis said.
