a stone with writing on it in two languages (egyptian and greek), using three scripts (hieroglyphic, demotic and greek)
the first was hieroglyphic which was the script used for important or religious documents.
the second was demotic which was the common script of egypt.
the third was greek which was the language of the rulers of egypt at that time.
the rosetta stone was written in all three scripts so that the priests, government officials and rulers of egypt could read what it said.
it lists all of the things that the pharaoh has done that are good for the priests and the people of egypt.
it was made in 196 B.C. and found by french soldiers in 1799.
they deciphered it and everyone could read it.
then a company was born (naturally) called rosetta stone that teaches people all oer the world to speak damn near every language there is.
then tool came along and was like "haha. rosetta stoned. flying banana. acid. LOL."
and now my pipes name is "rosetta".
