The Rosetta Stone is a large stone transcribed with an ancient decree issued by King Ptolemy V Epiphanes in Memphis, Egypt in 196 BC. The decree is recorded in three languages: Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics, Ancient Egyptian Demotic script, and Ancient Greek. The re-discovery of this stone gave researchers a key to deciphering Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics. It is now on public display at the British Museum in London, England.
