On the following webpage a few new images of the Antikythera artifact can be found: 

The Antikythera Mechanism is an ancient astronomical computer built by the Greeks around 80 B.C. It was found on a shipwreck by sponge divers in 1900, and its exact function still eludes scholars to this day.

Actually off-topic, but interesting for 2 reason at least: 
1. Interesting Greek inscriptions
2. Cool Java interface to change the lighting directions on the fly. 

Check it out!
