English: The Rosetta Stone in the British Museum. Source Own work Hans Hillewaert Writing Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs, demotic and Greek script Created 196 BC Discovered 1799
One of the most important discoveries made by the French was the Rosetta Stone, a slab with hieroglyphics, Latin, and Greek written on it. This stone was the key to translating the ancient Egyptian language.
What makes the Rosetta Stone unique is that it is written in three different languages; Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs, Demotic and Ancient Greek. Carved in 196 BC and discovered in Egypt in 1799, the stone's discovery helped with the modern understanding of Egyptian hieroglyphs.
The Rosetta Stone is a Ptolemaic age granodiorite stele inscribed with a decree issued at Memphis in 196 BC on behalf of King Ptolemy V. The decree appears in three scripts: the upper text is Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs, the middle portion Demotic script, and the lowest Ancient Greek. Because it presents essentially the same text in all three scripts,it provided the key to the modern understanding of Egyptian hieroglyphs.

The Rosetta Stone - A ancient Egyptian granodiorite stele inscribed with a decree issued at Memphis in 196 BC on behalf of King Ptolemy V. Originally displayed within a temple, the stone was probably moved during the early Christian or medieval period and eventually used as building material in the construction of Fort Julien near the town of Rashid (Rosetta) in the Nile Delta. It was rediscovered there in 1799 by a soldier, Pierre-François Bouchard, of the French expedition to Egypt.
