The Rosetta Stone was integral to understanding ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics. Prior to the stone's discovery in 1779, the skill of reading and writing hieroglyphics had disappeared. The original stone displays a decree in three different languages, including hieroglyphics and Greek. The Greek translation was key to deciphering hieroglyphics. The stone is now held at the British Museum in London.
This archaeological treasure doubles as unique decor! Two bookends styled off the Rosetta Stone serve as an artistic but practical tribute to this fascinating find. Each bookend measures 10 inches high, 7.25 inches wide, and 3.5 inches deep.
