Rosetta Stone. Egypt (Ptolemaic period) 203 BC.
Now in the British Museum. The Rosetta Stone in its present state is an irregularly shaped slab of compact black basalt, measuring about 114 cm long, 72 cm wide and 28 cm thick. It was found in July 1799 at a site near the mouth of the great branch of the Nile that flows through the western delta to the sea, not far from the village of Rasnid, or as the Europeans call it, Rosetta.
