The Rosetta Stone is a Ptolemaic era stele written with the same text in two Egyptian language scripts (hieroglyphic and demotic) and in classical Greek. It was created in 196 BC and discovered by the French in 1799 at Rosetta, a harbor on the Mediterranean coast in Egypt, and contributed greatly to the decipherment of the principles of Hieroglyphic writing.

 
The skill of reading Hieroglphs was lost until the discovery of this slab found at Rosetta. It now sits in the British Museum.
 
We have created a very highly detailed reproduction of the famous Rosetta Stone. This replica Rosetta Stone is very heavy & measures; 14 inches (35.56 centimeters) tall x 10.5 inches (26.67 centimeters) wide x .75 inches (1.905 centimeters) thick. It has a hook on the back so you can display on wall. It is painted black & antiqued so all three of the etched langauges can be easily read. each one was painstakingly carved out of the original model. The Rosetta Stone is made out of a very durable PolyResin material.
 
The Rosetta Stone comes complete with a framable certificate that explains the basic history of the artifact to the 21st century. It also comes with copy of a 1859 newspaper article printed on parchment type paper. This is the date when the first complete translation of the text was published. This is also meant to be framed. Copies of the actual translation are also available.
