THE ROSETTA STONE
The Rosetta Stone is one of the most important monuments of thepast the world contains. It takes its name from the place of itsdiscovery: Rosetta, Lowe: Egypt. Found by an officer in Napoleon'sarmy in 1798, this black basalt slab was brought to England in 1802,and is now in the British Museum. The Rosetta Stone is inscribedwith a decree in two forms of Egyptian writing; the priest's (hiero-glyphics) and the people's (demotic). Below these is a version in Greek,195 B.c. The translation of the Greek revealed that the only namementioned was that of Ptolemy V, and since the discovery that thelong, flattened halo-like rings (cartouches) in the hieroglyphics con-tained only royal names, it became clear that every cartouche con-tained the name of Ptolemy. The progress made in deciphermentby the French scholar Champollion, provided an invaluable clue tethe hieroglyphic writings of ancient Egypt.
