Ancient Greek statue showing woman ‘using a laptop is ‘proof of time travel’, bizarre theory claims
THIS ancient Greek tombstone has conspiracy nuts in a flap – as they reckon it shows a woman using a laptop with USB ports.
A bonkers theory claims it is proof a time traveller took a portable computer back to when the marble relief was sculpted in 100BC.

The 37 inch statue, called Grave Naiskos Of An Enthroned Woman With An Attendant, is on display at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Malibu, California.
It was used as a funeral marker and depicts a woman sitting on an armchair as a slave girl holds open a thin folding box.
The mistress touches the lid and gazes at the upper section – which some online believe is the screen of a laptop.
Along the side are two holes said to resemble USB ports or other cable inputs.
She adds the holes in the side could have held wooden objects which have since rotted away.
It’s not the first time gallery visitors claim to have found evidence of time travel in artworks.
Art fans were baffled at a woman “holding an iPhone” in a painting from the 1860s.
Another man was spotted thumbing what looks like an iPhone in a 1930s mural of a scene from 17th century New England.
And Apple boss Tim Cook joked he had found one of his firm’s gadgets in a 350-year-old masterpiece in Amsterdam.
