In the basement of a museum in Baghdad in 1938, an Austrian archaeologist named Wilhelm Konig uncovered a startling find. A little, more than 2,000-year-old clay container with a brilliant yellow exterior and a copper cylinder inside. The cylinder’s edge was soldered, as is commonplace nowadays.

Corrosion could be seen on the iron rod that was hung into the copper cylinder’s core. Konig said that the clay pot was nothing more than an antiquated electric battery.

It dates back to the Parthian era, which lasted from 248 BC to 226 CE. However, Konig also discovered copper vases that had been coated in silver and dated to at least 25000 BC in the Baghdad Museum.

Many hypotheses contend that the Parthians acquired this form of technology from a far earlier culture. In addition, given the numerous anomalous discoveries from various places that imply the usage of electricity by other ancient civilizations, comparable batteries like this one can be attributed to ancient Egypt.


Since a sizable dynamo-generated current is required, it is unnecessary to mention that the ones discovered in Baghdad are not particularly potent.
