An ancient Greek statue depicting a woman using a laptop is “evidence of time travel,” claims a bizarre theory

THIS ancient Greek tombstone has conspiracy nuts in a flap – they suspect it depicts a woman using a laptop with USB ports.

A crazy theory claims it’s evidence that a time traveler brought a portable computer back in time to when the marble carving was made in 100 BC.

Named Grave Naiskos Of An Throned Woman With An Attendant, the 37-inch statue is on display at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Malibu, California.

It was used as a tombstone and shows a woman seated on a chair while a slave holds a thin folding box.

The mistress touches the lid and stares at the top part – what some online believe is the screen of a laptop.

There are two holes on the side that are meant to resemble USB ports or other cable entry points.

According to a video on the conspiracy theorists’ YouTube channel Still Speaking Out, the base is too flat to serve as a jewelry box.

“It shows an amazing object that bears a striking resemblance to a modern laptop or handheld device,” the video says.

“When I look at the sculpture, I cannot help but think of the Oracle at Delphi, which was supposed to allow the priests to connect with the gods to retrieve advanced information.”

The explanation is more down-to-earth, experts say.

The description of the sculpture in one historian’s gallery says it shows the woman whose grave it marked looking into a “shallow chest”.

It was a common theme in funerary art at the time, expressing the hope that loved ones would enjoy the same earthly pleasures in the afterlife.

The object could also be a pair of wax tablets used for writing, archaeologist Kristina Killgrove wrote in Forbes.

She adds that the holes in the side could contain wooden objects that have since rotted away.

It’s not the first time gallery-goers have claimed to have found evidence of time travel in artworks.

Art fans have been stunned by a woman “holding an iPhone” in an 1860s painting.

Another man was seen leaning on a 1930s mural depicting a scene from 17th-century New England.

And Apple CEO Tim Cook joked that he found one of his company’s devices in a 350-year-old masterpiece in Amsterdam.

Meanwhile, sports fans suspect a time traveler used an iPhone to film ringside during a Mike Tyson fight in 1995.

And what appears to be a clamshell phone was spotted in a photo of the Brazil captain celebrating after the 1962 World Cup final.
