    Looks pretty awesome but I don't think it's an iPhone. If time travel ever does become possible, which is in itself very unlikely, it will only be to the future- not to the past.

    It could be anything, from a cake to a book to nothing more than posture.

    However, for the record, mobile phones were predicted in about 1903 or something, when an early sf writer predicted "wireless telegraphs that fit in a shirt pocket" or some such. I'll try and find who it was, can't remember offhand.
    Nikola Tesla is a safe assumption.

    Why do you think that the painting is evidence of the phone travelling backwards in time? Could it not have travelled forward from that time in pursuit of a ready market and infrastructure?

    It could, but that somehow is an even more ludicrous idea.

    No, it was someone you'd have to know about to know about... if you get me. I know Tesla's work, would definitely remember if it was him. Tesla didn't even believe in radiotelegraphy.

    this is surely an interview:

    "So Barates of Samos you wish to apply for the post of Ostraciser here at Democracy Я Us ?"

    "Yes citizen Nikomachos; the time has come to clear the Augean stables and install a truly representative People's Party"

    "I see. It says here that you are now 12 years old and have earned a living hunting the octopus and sea-urchins. What does your experience in these areas bring to the table of Athenian politics ?"

    "As i see it Citizen the enemies of democracy are like the wily weever fish which buries itself in the sand waiting for the unwary foot; thereupon it thrusts its poison into the bloodstream of the victim."

    "Most apt young man ! And who in the Polis do you think is such a dangerous fish ?"

    "Surely the senescent Corybinus; his comical capers are but a thin disguise for bitter malevolence. He hopes to destroy our nascent democracy before dread Atropos cuts the thread of his wretched life"

    "You have a great future ahead of you Barates; the Samiot mollusc may rest easily ! Please see Chlorissa on reception for your welcome pack"

    "Next !"
