Most of these aren't "lost technologies" at all... 10. Okay this is quite possibly a "lost" technology, but we still have some specimens of the violin that can be reverse-engineered. 9. I don't know much about it, but it sounds more like a religious symbol rather than an actual flying chariot. 8. We have already reverse-engineered and created Roman concrete; it's impressive for its time, but it was hardly lost. 7. Just because we don't know how exactly pyramids were built back then doesn't mean we can't build a pyramid today with modern technology. 6. Atlantis is a mythical lost civilization, not a technology. The fabled metal alloy orichalcum that only Atlanteans supposedly knew the recipe to, however... 5. The recipe to Damascus steel was never lost, and can be made from-scratch today. 4. The first truly lost technology. Well done. 3. I'm fairly certain that it doesn't count as a "lost technology" if we have more advanced and efficient alternatives built off the concept. Besides, NASA has sufficient information to replicate the Apollo spacecrafts if they so chose to. 2. Ironically, we have the technology thought to have been used in the death ray: mirrors in a parabolic shape congregate solar radiation into one focal point. However, it's far too inefficient to weaponize. 1. Greek fire is thought to have been a napalm-like solution, and we have more readily-available alternatives. ...yeah, this Top 10 sucked.

Shouldn't the "Rust-Resistant Pillar" be on here? The iron pillar in India that hasn't rusted too much since it was built a few thousand years ago?
