Power Sources Of The Past: Are these 2,000 Year Old Artifacts Ancient Batteries?

In 1936, during excavations on a hill in Kujut Rabua, a village southeast of Baghdad (Iraq), workers of the Iraqi State Railway Department discovered an old grave covered with a stone slab.
For two months, the Iraqi Department of Antiquities extracted a total of 613 beads, clay figurines, chiseled bricks and other pieces.
They were dated between 248 BC and 226 AD.
They also found unique terracotta pots, shaped like a vase and of a light yellowish color, containing a cylinder made of a rolled copper sheet, which houses a single iron rod. The container measured 14 cm high by 4 cm in diameter, while the copper cylinder measured 9 cm high by 2.6 cm in diameter. At the top, the iron rod is isolated from the copper by bitumen, with plugs or stoppers, and both rod and cylinder fit snugly inside the opening of the jar.
