    Close up of the Rosetta Stone, at the British Museum in London, England. The Rosetta Stone is inscribed with a decree issued at Memphis, Egypt, in 196 BC on by 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 (with some minor differences), it provided the key to the modern understanding of Egyptian hieroglyphs.
