Did Pieter de Hooch invent the iPhone in 1670?

Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, says he saw an iPhone in a 346-year-old painting, contradicting everything we thought we knew about the history of the smartphone.

During the interview, Kroes asked Tim where the iPhone was actually invented, to which Tim Cook replied:

You know, I thought I knew until last night.

Check out Douris, an Ancient Greek, using an iPad Pro with a Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil, circa 500BC:

Ancient Greece was years ahead of Cupertino

Impressive stuff.

Can you find any other examples of technology being discovered way before we thought it was?
