Predict Eclipses with Antikythera Mechanism Made from LEGOs

It had a bottom dial that was in a 223 month cycle – That of a standard eclipse.  The top dial was in a 235 month cycle, for distribution of new moons. In 1901, this device was salvaged after a ship crashed on the Antikythera island. That is why it’s called the Antikythera Mechanism.
