The Rosetta Stone
Ancient Egypt was conquered by many of its neighbors including the Greeks during Alexander the Great’s conquest. Because of this the culture and the society was forced to learn and adopt the culture of their conquerors. This lead for the Egyptians to forget how to read and write in hieroglyphs. The stone (or slav) was essential inorder to translate hieroglyphs because it was written in greek and in demonic which made it easier to translate and find patterns to relearn the old language.
