Ancient Digital Classicists

There's a new book out soon about the Antikythera mechanism, called "Decoding the Heavens: Solving the Mystery of the World's First Computer" by Jo Marchant which looks like its worth a peek. Interesting discussion about it on the Guardian's science podcast, too.

In this context, some might be interested in Alexander Jones's post on the Inscriptions on the Antikythera Mechanism over at CurEp.
