A nail file with hieroglyphic writing from the Rosetta Stone.

The Rosetta stone was discovered in 1799 by French soldiers in the village of el-Rashid (Rosetta). By this time knowledge of the ancient Egyptian scripts had been lost for over 1,000 years. The stone contains a text in three different languages and scripts. The known Ancient Greek text at the bottom of the stone helped scholars decipher the Ancient Egyptian scripts ? the middle one in cursive Demotic and the top one in hieroglyphs. The grey granitoid stone is incomplete.

The hieroglyphic writing can be found on both sides of the nail file.
