OriginEdit

There is much debate over when exactly the first wheel was invented. Although the Halaf culture of 6500–5100 BCE is sometimes credited with the earliest depiction of a wheeled vehicle, it is highly doubtful they had or used a wheel, as there is no evidence that they had used any sort of wheel at any point. Precursors of wheels, known as "tournettes", were known in the Middle East region around the 5th millennium BC (one of the earliest examples was discovered at Tepe Pardis, Iran, and dated to 5200–4700 BC). These were made of stone or clay and secured to the ground with a peg in the center, but required much effort to turn. True potter's wheels that were free-spinning are believed to have been in use in Mesopotamia in 3500 BC, and possibly as early as 4000 BC. The oldest surviving example, which was found in Ur (modern day Iraq), dates to approximately 3100 BC.

CollectionEdit

It was known to have been lost sometime during the tenure of Warehouse 5 and was rumored to be in the Electorate of Saxony at the time of Warehouse 8. It is known to have been in the possession of Galileo Galilei for a time in the late 1600s and helped inspire his work in astronomy and physics, even after it was collected from him.
